'A woman is like a tea bag
You never know how strong she is until you put her in hot water...'
So said Eleanor Roosevelt who came to tea today. Ok - that was just to get your attention - here's what really happened. This morning I received a present from an American lady who clearly has a very kind heart. The lady, who'll we'll call Francie, sent me a heart-shaped teaspooon which was featured on her blog recently. When I admired them both - the blog and the teaspoon -she promptly asked for my address.
|Francie's cup of love...|
The beautifully-wrapped spoon was accompanied by a teabag holder, along with the wonderfully witty quote above, plus a book full of fascinating quotes called Afternoon Tea. Inside was a card inscribed with the words 'Thankyou for your sweet comments. Would be so nice to share a cup of tea.'
Now I'm not sure if I will ever share a cup of tea with you, Francie, but I do want to say that you really have made my day.
