Long weekends are the best but lets face it, trying to find a coffee on those public holidays can be the worst. To help you all along (as I am so very helpful), I’ve put together a list of places open for coffee on Good Friday. If there is nothing close to you, please don’t fret as this list will grow as the week goes on and more come to light. Feel free to add you local in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if I miss you.

Winners of the Aldi Hot Cross Bun Competition
A couple of weeks ago, the kind people at Aldi gave me the chance to give away a few prize packs of their hot cross buns including some of their specialty Belgium chocolate and sour cherry buns. A big thanks to all of you who took the time to enter and a big thanks to Aldi for giving me the opportunity to see their set up and give away a few of their hot cross buns while making absurd bun puns. The winners have been drawn and notified, yay for winners and their buns!
