Getting ready to board the steam train for one of the most enjoyable day trips I have ever taken. The Downpatrick Steam train is run by a group of delightful, smiling, informative volunteers. The work they do is breathtaking. The joy I experienced travelling in one of their wonderful trains is bringing a smile to my face even as I write this. A truly fabulous day out for people of all ages.
Ever have one of those days when you wish you could stamp ‘out of order’ on your forehead on go back to bed?
I loaned my collection of tea sets to a neighbours daughter for her wedding breakfast. I was happy and delighted to do so but I really missed my china cups and saucers. I use each and every one of them. Not every day but every time I have a cup of tea, which is often, I use a china cup and saucer. Not only that but the removal of the cups showed me my kitchen needs a fresh coat of paint. Since I am my own workman, time to get out the overalls and start painting. Big Sigh.
My tea sets are back in pride of place and I’m again enjoying my tea in familiar cups and saucers. Believe it or not that gives me a lot of joy.
