I haven’t discovered the meaning of life or how to limbo without falling flat on my back (damn you, weak core muscles!) but I have discovered the joys of hazelnut syrup in my coffee!

Yet, one of our American colleagues who is visiting for a workshop brought a bottle of Starbucks Sugar free Hazelnut syrup with him as it is the only way it takes his coffee and kindly shared the bottle with the rest of the office….I made the mistake of trying it out… OMG!

I am going to have to me some….oh darn.
