Living in a Field of Hats

some ramblings and reflections on working with students in Herts and Beds.

Coffee January 20, 2011

So, I’m sat writing this in my 3rd coffee shop of the day … It’s easy to see why it sometimes appear all I do is drink coffee. But the reason that my job isn’t a cafe’s mystery shopper (though that would be awesome!) is the things I do whilst in a coffee shop. That varies depending on where I am and who I’m with. But in the last few months I’ve used coffee shops as a venue for prep, meeting students to chat over many issues, meeting committees, meeting church leaders, meeting students to study the bible one to one or in a small group, planning a mission trip for next summer, meeting my boss and so much more I’m sure. I love that the UK is catching up with the coffee shop culture and that they are open later and later! I’m currently sat preparing a talk for next week whilst waiting for CU to start in Hatfield – if the cafe wasn’t still open I’d not be anywhere near as comfortable or drinking lovely tea (two coffee shops today have really taken care of my caffeine needs!)
