    surprise birthday present!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    it's been a while since I've posted regularly here - jobs, life, the usual distractions taking up my time.

    It was my birthday yesterday (no pomp and ceremony necessary!), and we don't usually spend money on unneeded presents for each other so it was a surprise when my wife handed me a wrapped box of 8 Bodum Pavina 250mL/8oz glasses. Apparently the price was a steal, and she researched on this forum after hearing me mention it so often. Well done - they are the ones I would have chosen and they nicely complement my $5 factory outlet cups & saucers. Although now I need a larger milk jug as I can't quite do 2 glasses per jug...

    Next on the cards is one of those small drum roasters with my savings.

    Anyway, hope you all have a blessed year as you get rewarded for the free help you all give here.

    And please don't pick on my latte art - I never was very good.

    G'Day Ian?,

    Many happy returns for yesterday, great gift, well done wife.

    Your right it has been a while since we heard from you, seems a lot of the older members have disappeared lately, its a shame, they have so much to offer.
    Stick around.
