Melbourne fun – Musings on a Monday

Welcome to my weekly Monday Musings - a summary of things going on in my world and the world at large. Last week I mentioned Cyclone Debbie (quite a bit), well I'm pleased to say she is now an ex-tropical cyclone.  I'll stop taking it personally now that I'm an ex! A few funfilled days: I …

iPhriday – Awesomeness

Mug

It's Phriday - that's awesome! I love Fridays and having an afternoon cup of tea in my favourite mug is an awesome way to start the weekend.  Relax, unwind, breathe...... It doesn't hurt to remind ourselves just how awesome we are either! iPhriday is where we get to share a photo taken with a mobile phone. Thanks to Lisa …

Weekly photo challenge: A gathering – of tea pots and family?

Awkward portrait at Christmas

Document a gathering and share your interpretation.... This is my interpretation of a gathering for this week's photo challenge.  I love a good cup of tea and at a recent gathering we noticed that the tea pots looked like they were having their very own meeting. (Apologies for the poor photo quality of this one). …

Birthday month

Celebrating birth days I read somewhere recently, (I can't remember where), that the mother should be congratulated on the birth-day of her children rather than the way we do it now, showering the birthday child with gifts and birthday wishes.    I presume because the mother has done all the work in producing said child.  I …

Tea Time #10 – a birthday treat

What special birthday food does your daughter want for her 30th birthday? Going on past birthday experiences I can guess. In case you missed my post last week, my second daughter is turning 30 in a few days time - that means I will have two daughters in their thirties!! Luckily my youngest has a few …

Tea time #9

Time for Tea

It's Tea Time again! I have recently visited my parents and the spare room has a delightful little book all about Tea Time on the bedside table.  I took the opportunity to take note of some of the quotes in the book and offer them for your consumption at Justine's Tea Party. There are few …

Tea Time #8 – BYO Tea caravan

I'm bringing my very own Travelling Teahouse Caravan to Justine's tea party this time.  It's the most gorgeous pink caravan that I came across at a Wedding Fair on the weekend.  (If you'd like to read all about my venture into the brave new world of weddings, here's a link you can click). I fell in love with …

Tea time #6 – with a confession

I'm always up for a tea party and a visit to Justine's Tea Time #6, over at Eclectic odds n sods, is just what the doctor ordered today as I'm feeling a bit poorly 😦 First up I have a confession to make! As you know on my last visit to Tea Time #5 I took along my …

Tea time #5 – I’m bringing my teatime buddy with me today

It's time for Justine's tea time again - don't the weeks just fly by? Today I'm bringing my little tea man buddy with me if that's ok. I fill his bottom half with tea leaves then let him recline in my mug for a while.  He doesn't drink much, he just lolls around,  relaxing in …

Is the kettle on? I’m coming over for Tea time #4

ausopen

As a tea lover I am joining Justine's Tea Time #4 for the first time. I've seen the posts before but haven't managed to make it before. I like my tea hot, black, weak with one sugar usually in a mug not a cup. I also like real tea if possible but will drink tea bag …
