A Somewhat 'weird' post....but it occurred to me the other day, just how big a part 'drinking' plays in my life. No, I don't mean of the alcoholic kind. Whilst I do like a tipple every now and then, it's not a big part of my life. No, i'm meaning a good hot beverage. I like cups, perhaps I even have a little cup obsession (to add to all the other obsessions), but......and I know that many of you agree.....you have to have different cups for different drinks at different times of the day. It's an essential in my house. And boy, do I get through a lot of cups...which justifies why I need so many (let's forget the argument there, that I could just use one and wash it out everytime).
Tea.....coffee.....hot water with lemon......whatever it is.....I LOVE drinking it. I can safely say, I think i'm up with my daily hydration.
Mid morning coffee....usually a piping hot latte...
...and if i'm feeling a case of the munchies, whatever falls out of the cupboard and into my hand. Today it was a panettone. It HAD to be eaten, well, that's what the sell by date told me, so who am I to complain at that?
I drink tea by the gallon if I am home throughout the afternoon. Always decaf these days.
My worst chore (well....one of them) is the laundry and I do anything to avoid it, which is quite hard with the three bears being laundry ratbags. Hot water and lemon. It's refreshing and perfect for late morning.
Washing on, hoovering done, cushions plumped, a sandwich eaten and the kettle is on. As I pour water into my ginger concoction, Mr Postie pops this through my box, perfect timing. Perfect prettiness to round off the mundane and tedious jobs...
A bit of DIY before the school run.....builder tea called for...
Late afternoon....... after the bears have got in from school, dumped all their kit and eaten a fridge full of food. It's my time for 10 minutes. Ahhhhhh. A particularly good month for 'Delicious' Magazine too I might add. A lot I want to make. That page had me drooling. Even Baby Bear said he'd quite like a Mad Hatters cake like that. Rock on.
early evening....Supper out of the way and it's a sit down and gather inspiration time.
