It seemed perfect to me that there was this café in my home town called Tiffany's when I have been wanting to go out for breakfast. Even better, it's just a two minute walk from my house, so this morning I decided to go to get cracking with my Twenty Things to do While 20 list.
The only other time I have been out for breakfast is when I have gotten up early to go to court to get a story, but the case has been cancelled. The first couple of times this happened myself and other course mates went to the nearest Wetherspoon's for a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea to perk ourselves up. However, I wouldn't count this as the ideal breakfast experience I was looking for. A dingy Spoons in Sheffield, surrounded by old men on their second or third pint of the day at ten o'clock in the morning doesn't match up with the sophistication I was after. It was made worse by the fact the men didn't have to order their pints, the bar man knew what they wanted - Guinness and Fosters being the most popular choices.
While I was at Tiffany's, I decided not to get the pints in. It was absolutely lovely inside, with pictures of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, vintage signs and guitars stuck on to the walls. Much better, I thought. Of course, I had to get the full English breakfast - bacon, sausage, fried egg, mushrooms and toast. (I don't like tomatoes) I dabbled with the idea of getting a waffle but thought that was American TV having it's influence over me. Though, admittedly, if we adopted the idea of having pancakes and/or waffles for breakfast more regularly, you wouldn't hear any complaints coming out of my sweet toothed mouth.
Going out for breakfast was such a pleasant experience. It makes a meal that is regarded as the most important, yet boring, meal of the day an occasion rather than just nearly falling asleep in to a bowl of cereal. It's a great start to the morning but, unfortunately, not one I could maintain on a regular basis. Plus, if I did, I don't think I'd consider it as much as a treat as I did today.
During my breakfast, I also thought I may as well order a coffee since it was on my list to try it.
Also, I thought of three more things to add to my list:
11. Make a roast dinner. Including a joint of meat, roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, carrots, parsnips, and peas.
12. Learn how to play a song on the ukulele
13. Upload videos to YouTube - which I've actually already started to know but I shall write a post on it later.
