Would you like a cuppa?
Sounds inviting doesn’t it?
As the kettle is filled with water and turned on to boil, the cup is selected and placed on the kitchen bench as it waits for the contents to warm it up. Will it be coffee? Tea? Hot chocolate? It doesn’t matter, the feeling it ignites is one of comfort.
It occurred to me today that my day revolves around cups of tea and coffee. I might as well be the vessel, that is - the cup. For I am forever waiting to be ‘warmed up’ by whatever choice of hot liquid I choose at the time.
‘Where is she going with this’ I hear you ask.
Well, take for instance this morning. My son asked me to play something with him. My answer, ‘I’ll just have my cup of tea.’
Then, having family over for lunch tomorrow meant that I needed to clean and tidy the house today, but first – ‘I’ll just have my mid-morning coffee’.
Fast forward to this afternoon. It is a cold, rainy and windy day here in Sydney (perfect for writing and playing guitar), so I had it all planned, but before I could start, I had to have just one more cuppa – a nice hot steaming cup of green tea!
Yes, I’m sure you get the picture. My day revolves around cuppa’s. Which is perfectly fine by me.
How about you? Do you get a ‘fix’ from your cuppa like I do?
