Tea and Me....

Saffron Buns with Rhubarb and Ginger Jam

I am not really one for taking seflies and posting them on my Instagram , as among other reasons I am really tragically un-photogenic......

... but scrolling through my feed this morning I discovered one thing I do seem to like doing is taking tea selfies, especially since I stumbled upon my new hand made mug in a local charity shop!

The last couple of years have been super hectic since having a child, and my tri-daily ritual of having a cup of tea is one of my greatest but simplest pleasures in life. A moment to relax and reflect, even if that means (being a naughty mummy) and giving my little one the ipad for a couple of minutes whilst I do so, because I really do NEED my cup of tea.

What are your daily rituals that keep you sane?

Ginger jam? I would love to try that... am off to google a recipe!
I like your instagram style pictures, it's interesting to see a little snippet here and there of your pretty home and treasures. Thanks for sharing.

Similar to yours--but that morning cup of coffee while I journal, pray and read the Bible for direction and inspiration for the day ahead. BTW, I can't pass up orphaned pottery mugs...

I find drinking my tea almost a passion/ritual as it seems to act like a moment of calm during a dizzy day - I have posted about tea drinking a number of times too, think it is time to do it again :)

I love that I found your blog and the first post I read is about tea rituals. I can definitely relate. Tea holds a very special place in my heart. I don't know what I'd ever do without it!
