good weekend

last weekend i paid a trip to Norwich to visit my pals and to see the Rocky Horror show at the theatre. i stayed with my good friends Anthony and Gemma and their new housemate Mr Pickles. the local coffee shop (the little red roaster) had a copy of my coffee zine on the counter to peruse while you wait for your coffee. they made a really good cup!
