Secret shopper

I think I’d like to be a secret shopper.
Lots of such random thought going on here at the moment as I would like some financial independence (just some please) and still mind my monkeys . So far I’ve come up with Avon lady (I don’t wear
Makeup very much so probably a no go)
Cleaning product sales (I don’t clean so no)
Cake taster (this would work but I don’t see this advertised much)
Coffee taster (I do this, a lot. I pay)

Yes. As you can see I’m not getting far. I think I might start to review the places I drink coffee…..hmmmmmm. Hence my secret shopper thoughts. I’d still have to pay though. Hubby darling wouldn’t be too happy if I spent all the weeks grocery shopping on latte’s.
I’m still thinking…..


The perfect coffee

After the school run today I found myself meandering home on a bit of a long way ’round.
Ah ha! That’s me pretending I’m not going for a coffee and then, oh look, while we’re here lets get a coffee….
I always seem to start this kind of thing as a kind of chore-avoidance-tactic. And there were plenty of reasons not to be sneaking off for a latte. Baby in sling was first reason. She hasn’t had her first feed yet. Usual rush out the door and the excitement of a mobilising family is just too exiting to be bothering about milk. Also I’m dragging my firstborn’s transport home with me, no easy feat. I keep banging my shins with it. And lastly it’s raining.
So why am I really propelling myself the very long way home? Is the coffee that good? Well, I got my comeuppance. Forgot my wallet.
Not to worry, my homemade latte wasn’t too bad, and it was much cheaper.
And tomorrow I’ll think of a good reason why I have to go for a latte.
