Whole9 30 Day Challenge Day 22

The little Year 9's were in at school today.  So cute, all keen and perfect uniform.  Long may it last!

Had the worst sleep last night, grrr.  I hate when I don't sleep that well.  Coffee was seriously on the agenda today!

On the way to work - dropped into Alicetown Espresso -  a new coffee bar very close to where I live and completely on the way to work.  Of course had the long black - was good, and quick service :)

Someone asked me what a long black was - I realise this is a coffee that has the name in Australia and New Zealand, not realising it may be different in the rest of the world.  So here is what a long black is: 

From Wikipedia :)

A long black is a style of coffee, most commonly found in New Zealand and Australia. It is now becoming available in the UK, predominantly in London.
A long black is made by pulling a double-shot of espresso or ristretto over hot water (usually the water is also heated by the espresso machine). A long black is similar to an Americano, which is made by adding hot water to the espresso shot; but a long black retains the crema and is less voluminous, therefore more strongly flavoured.
The order in which a long black is made (water first, espresso second) is important -- reversing the steps will destroy the crema from the espresso shot and make an Americano.

So at work I played Dean today - no longer Form teacher.  I visited classes.  Lots of walking around - its good to be out and about like that.  Will need to make sure am wearing good shoes if this is what Deaning involves!

Breakfast: Breakfast Slice and coffee

Lunch - Salad with tuna

Dinner - Thai Chicken Curry - coconut milk, chicken, curry paste.  Instead of rice I had egg plant - was delicious!

Snacks - Baby Carrots, nuts

Not enough water as left water bottle at home, and maybe a little much coffee at work.

Dog walk at beach.

Lots of work needed to be done - not going to bed until after midnight!  That has to stop!
