I’m trying to keep off coffee. Difficult, for someone who’s used to two of these a day:

I’ve not bought any real coffee powder (read “filter coffee” powder) since September. I have a solitary packet of instant coffee for guests. My hatred for the instant variety is so great that the instant coffee has not even been transferred to a jar.

I feel my knees giving way.
