less is more
last week i popped into an antique shop with my mum. i left with a beautiful art deco china tea cup. upon purchasing said cup, the proprietor stated that his teenage daughter had also recently started collecting delicate tea cups. he then went on to suggest that i too had the same motivations. i questioned what he meant. it would appear that i have jumped on a lady gaga tea drinking bandwagon! completely unwittingly i hasten to add.
i tried to explain that i've always enjoyed a good cuppa. and that i've been slurping pint mugs of milky builders tea for years but have recently discovered less is more. there is nothing quite as refreshing as a lady grey, no milk, a slice a of lemon, sipped from a fine bone china cup, with the correct pinky pointing.
of course, the size of the accompanying cakes have not shrunk at all.
