found this funnuy quote about tea in a book I'm reading called "Blue Shoes and Happiness" by Alexander Mc Call Smith. It descride life at the moment for me..busy and demanding.

(it is about an african lady who is a lady detective)

"That was part of being a woman, she thought: one never reached the end. Even if one could sit down and drink a cup of bush tea, even two cups, one always knew at the end of the tea there was somebody waiting for something. Children or men were waiting to be fed; a dirty floor cried out to be washed; a crumpled skirt called for an iron. And so it would continue. Tea was a temporary solution to the cares of the world, although it certainly helped.

Most problems could be diminished by the drinking of tea and the thinking through of things that could be done while the tea was being drunk. And even if that did not resolve the problems, at least it could put them off for a little while, which we sometimes needed to do, we really did."

I love it...its so right, sometimes when we are having a stressful day or week just a 5 min *tea break* to take stock, reflect and unwind can do the world of put your feet up and have a good cuppa what ever kind and where ever you may be!!! :)
Picture is of my fav little tea pot bought on holiday in Tenby in Wales and it reminds me of my daughter Elisha (or Ellie as we used to call her) and i love the mug bc it matches!!
