Wednesday words - Tea.

As it is indeed Wednesday today, and I am actually doing Wednesday words on time, I have decided to focus on part of my ritual post from last week.


I love tea.

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” 
― C.S. Lewis

Since I have had a Kindle, and 7 different teas in the house, I have done the minimum of housework.  It shows.  But next week is half term, and I can do as much housework as I like then.  Or don't like but still have to do.

"Dad was at his desk when I opened the door, doing what all British people do when they're freaked out: drinking tea.” 
― Rachel HawkinsDemonglass

I have a memory, of being in the police car on the way back to the house, and the police man asking me if there was anything that I wanted.  I remember replying "I'd like a cup of tea please." and then adding "How very bloody English of me!" and wanting to laugh at myself, for taking refuge in a brew, as if that would make the previous conversation (the one where my fiancé was killed in a bike accident) all better.

“There are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work. And those who stay clean, just appreciate things. At breakfast they have milk and juice at night. There are those who do both, they drink tea.” 
― Gary Snyder

Lastly, there is this quote.  I love this quote.  It might even be my new favourite quote.  I am both.  I love to get dirty and fix things.  I love to appreciate the lovely things.

We should appreciate more lovely things, and drink more tea.

I have no idea if Crazy With Twins is drinking tea.  I shall go and look.

Thanks so much for your comment on my last week's Wednesday words, which is actually still near the top of my blog as I have not blogged for a week (chest infection). I am about to make a brew - makes EVERYTHING better. Sorry about your loss; I hope it was a long time ago and that time has healed.

My poem didn't 100% reflect my beliefs, at all. SO I have replied to your comment. I can't abide Michael Gove either.
