There is something about a proper china cup and saucer, tea just tastes so much better out of a cup. What's that all about? Why? Is it because it holds less in volume but more in quality?......Well that sounds good so I'm sticking to that.
This lovely tea set was my Mother's Day present and I love it.....and my boys for buying it for me. It's just the perfect pressie. It's dainty, classy and pure white just like me.....ha ha maybe not but I feel a bit classy using a cup.
These feel so special and not because I love tea and teapots but because they were given to me from my two gorgeous boys. I feel very loved, just need to teach them how to make a brew now so I don't have to do it ......may take some time, I won't push my luck.
I feel a bit of a collection coming on now, I thought handbags were a passion but now I'm thinking I could get used to having lots of teapots and teacups around. They are nice to look at too but best with a brew in. The only trouble with a cup and saucer is that I tend to shake when trying to carry it. Never been good at carrying drinks even as a young person buying a round of drinks in a bar I can be supported with a tray and I will still resemble Mrs Overall in Acorn Antiques. I just blame it on my age now.
Well I hope you had a lovely day too on Mothering Sunday. I hope you were completely spoilt and someone made you lots and lots of brews. Me? I'm going to now live up to my name......I'm Sue and I'm going to Make a Brew!!
Thanks for reading, pop back again tomorrow for What to Buy Wednesday but for now.......
