Now I don’t really need any more excuses to turn on the kettle but it sounded quite fun so I had a go and I went from ‘Sluggish Snail’ to ‘Bobbing Bobcat’ after my caffeine fix! Of course, it is completely addictive and I’m now aiming for the ultimate prize ‘Turbo-charged cheetah’.  Really must get on with some work…anyone for a cuppa?!
