Tea – a Tribute

I love tea.  I just love it.  The taste of it, the warming effect it has, the ritual of making it. (The cake I eat with it…)

Except wait.  No longer can I enjoy a simple cup of tea, one of life’s little pleasures.  Because, not content with ruining my social life and my pelvic floor, my children now ruin my tea-drinking on a daily basis.  I consider it a good day if I’ve managed one really good, hot cup of tea, in peace.  Because, let’s face it, a luke-warm cup gulped down in between umpiring a wrestling match between two squalling dictators is no pleasure whatsoever.  I could cry at the PG Tips wastage that goes on in this house.

    I feel your pain! I sometimes get up at 5.30am to have a cup of tea in complete peace.

    Ha ha… I’m actually drinking a luke warm cup right now!! So true. All those poor half drunk cups of tea! On a practical note, a ceramic thermos cup will give you extra time to finish your hot cup of tea!!! Thanks for linking up #FabFridayPost

    ha ha, I long for the day when I get to drink a whole cup of tea that isn’t cold… #fabfridaypost

    Tragic, half drunk, filled with random food bits…your tribute means that their loss will not be in vain.
