Well, over the last ten days or so I have had some very bad news and been very sick. Connected or not, who knows? It has been a pretty crappy time I must say.

Today, however, I'm starting to feel better physically and to get things back in perspective. I'm taking the time to get some household things done... Like folding the nappies (Pip has spent the last couple of days in disposables!) and sorting out laundry and making the bed. And I just did some yoga and had a cup of tea. (I also had to have a giggle while doing my yoga, because I had some rainforet sounds playing on my iPod, and the bird calls sent our cat hunting round the room trying unsuccessfully to locate their source.)

I'm thinking that maybe this afternoon or this evening I might bake some biscuits... Or anything really, because it is beyond freezing at our house today and having the oven going will be a good way to warm the place up a bit! This evening I think I will snuggle down with my husband, some tea and my Tea Geek course and do some tea-geeky study. I really feel like doing homey, comforting, quiet things. What about you?.


  1. I'm sorry you've had a hard week. Sounds like you're having a nice time recovering from everything, though. I've been in a similar place lately, trying to recover from a hard time. Tea heals a lot of trauma, I've found. Tonight, our power went out for a few hours, so I ended up reading Eragon by candlelight. It was actually kind of nice, but I couldn't have tea or most of the food in our house (because most of it has to be cooked). Thus, when the power finally did come back on, I hastily made some food and am now catching up on email. Anyway, all that to say, I hope you continue to feel better, both physically and emotionally.

    So funny about your cat. I've used a laser pointer to taunt my mom's cat, and that was pretty entertaining, too.

  2. Thanks for your kind wishes Samantha, much appreciated! Boo to lack of tea due to a power outage though... ;)
