Where NOT to drink coffee in Le Boterff / Cléguérec

Postby Lambo » Sat Dec 19, 2009 4:51 pm

At our neighbours!
Went out for a walk in the snow with them, then they fed and watered me and then they gave me a hot drink...
They're lovely people/friends but their coffee is SO disgusting - chicory flavoured sh*te :cry:

When does one draw the line between being polite to friends and being poisoned?! :?

Look on the bright side, you have just enough time to buy them a cafetierre and some decent coffee, and to call it a Christmas present. Then every time you pop round they will be 'shamed' into getting it out for you even if they drink cr*p the rest of the time.!

It's a nice idea, but sadly I don't think it'll work Oh well, it's only a few times a year, so I might one day build up an imunity to it!

Yep, just got to sort out when! The snow would have made driving "fun" today.
SW(Thinks She)MBO arrives on Tuesday, so ....

I know 2 decent places in BZH, except one is currently closed for the holidays, and the other looked snowed in this morning :wink:
As for BZH being particularly bad... nah, it's no worse than the other 90 odd contiguous departments! :D
As for not driving in this weather... we did 29 down to 49 today, and tomorrow it's 49 -> Norfolk... which looks like it might be fun :D
Lambo, if you go to see Stéphane, tell him to get his bloody machine plumbed in, or I ain't coming to visit! :P
This week I are feeling sleepy!
