A wise person once told me that a cup of tea without a biscuit was a wasted opportunity, and I concur wholeheartedly. Though I am also satisfied with a slice or piece of cake in place of the biscuit, I don’t discriminate in my choice of sweet treat. I love sitting down with a cuppa because it makes me slow down and take stock a little bit each day.
Today I enjoyed my herbal tea and almond and orange biscotti in the garden with Miss Two after a morning of weeding, washing and swinging, oh plus saying hello to the worms. We sat at the table and looked out over our hard work, positioning myself so that I couldn’t see the area yet to be tackled.
When we headed out this morning I could smell spring on its way. It was warmer than it had been and windy. And perhaps it is the feeling of spring coming that has given me a boost of motivation to work on my grand garden plans. Whatever it is sitting down with my cup of tea and biscuit, thinking about all the things I wanted to do with the area I had been working in was exciting. I feel like going straight down to the nursery and going mad, but I think I need to steady up a little. With two little ones in tow there is only so much one person can achieve, so a slowly, slowly approach I think would be advisable.
So if you haven’t stopped for a cuppa yet today, why not go and do that now (or coffee if you’d prefer) just make sure you have a bikkie to go with it.
