I had a little accident at work this morning. While carrying out my work in a mature and sensible manner (despite claims from colleagues who say I was messing around) the tip of my elbow met the base of the cafetiere. The cafetiere was filled with hot black coffee. The cafetiere fell. The hot black coffee left the cafetiere and ran all over the table, dripping all over the floor, splashing the keyboard, mouse mat and surrounding desktop objects.

I didn’t know what to do. I could have caught the cafetiere and prevented the tsunami which was unfolding – I didn’t. I could have moved the electronic lamp, keyboard and wireless mouse out of path of the molten coffee – I didn’t. I could have run away – I probably should have. Instead, I stood there and laughed – what more can you do?

I won’t bore you with the aftermath and tedious cleaning up process, but I will say that the desk next to mine (note: I did NOT destroy my own workspace) is sticky, has a few missing artefacts (they are know coffee stained and in the bin) and has a slight hint of brown about it. On the plus side, the office smells like Starbucks.

    Mr. Kitson, you are a drunkard! Only you would be responsible for the spillage of a sizeable quantity of stain-inducing liquid..

    that Mr. Kitson is an alcoholic!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
