“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
“Under certain circumstances, there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea. From five o’clock to eight is on certain occasions a little eternity; but on such an occasion as this the interval could be only an eternity of pleasure.”
The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James
Still waiting and counting the days. 5 days until the big ‘test’. 7 days until building completion and I can finally clean up my house. 11 days until my birthday – I thought I’d include that, but I’m not really counting. 18 days until my family arrives. I wait, I wait, for a very important date!
The only way I’m able to deal with the current wait is to pop the kettle on and have a cuppa. Join me if you like.
p.s. Though frustrated, I’m trying not to wish time away as I firmly believe it’s the only time we have. It’s precious.
p.p.s. Yes, the photo is of a clock in our house, a gift from our precious friend, DF.
p.p.p.s. The C.S Lewis quote is a cheat. It’s not from one of his books I’ve read, but rather something he said.
