How I love tea, let me count the ways…

Have I told you how I’m obsessed with tea? The drink, not the meal that really is called dinner (although I am fairly fond of all meal times, obviously). When I was a little girl, I started drinking tea then albeit more milk with a dash of tea. My dad was a massive fan of […]

What a lovely day….

It really was as well. Now, I will say that I was already in a good mood. Partly for all the flattery I’d been receiving via those new-fangled electronic messages they have, but mostly because it dawned on me – I’ve cracked this confidence thing. Ok, I still have days when I feel like total […]
