I have to have tea when I wake up... Yep, I know that hot water and lemon or just hot water would be so much better for me. But I am a total out and out 'tea girl'. It has to be in a special mug too... I have various mugs for different times of the day - weird but true! Is anyone else so 'A' type about their tea?
Over the weekend, lack of tea bags snuck up on me! Total mayhem! I was in that tea cupboard, well, very quickly shall we say. I did manage to find some rogue 'bags' that we had been given at Christmas time. Phew!! My husband saw this process taking place and he said it wasn't pretty. In case you are wondering, this happened at night, so no shops open (it is the UK and a small village at that you know)... ha, ha.
So, my new painting is called 'Morning tea...'. It sums me up to a 't or tea' shall we say (sorry for the pun - it was intended!) My three big must haves in life are: tea, contemplation time and flowers. What could be better? (I do have other 'life requirements' too but these are biggies).
What drink or food item could you not be without first thing in the morning?
I love the photo above, btw!
Thinking of the photo above, do you use loose tea? I have not regularly had loose tea since my Granny was alive. She used to read the 'tea leaves' that got left behind - you know the dregs, she called them. I was fascinated. She would 'see' boats, people, events for the future - of course this was totally enthralling for a seven year old.
Anyway, happy 'tea making'. Hope you like my new painting...
