Here's to my second day posting for the 'Blog every day in May' challenge! The topic is 'What's in your cup?' My daily drinks aren't that adventurous lol. Most of the time I drink just normal tea....I'm not too fussy on brand, at the moment we are drinking Typhoo tea as my Nan gave me some when I saw her last. My Nan is a legend....she buys food when it is on offer and then passes it all out to us grandkids when we go to visit! Her bedroom is like a shop....we call it 'Nanasburys' ;) I am currently trying to lose some weight so I am trying to drink lots of water, again not too interesting! So, instead of concentrating on 'What's IN my cup' I thought I'd show you my actual cup I'm drinking from lol! Hope this is of some interest lol!
I have a bit of an extensive mug collection....we really need to purge the mug cupboard...but there is something about a nice mug that makes me feel happy! Sometimes when I'm feeling a bit low or just need cheering up, I will select a certain mug and it makes the drink taste much nicer. Silly I know! My favourite mugs are my Emma Bridgewater mugs. They are just so pretty. I've never bought one for myself as they are pretty pricy, but I have been lucky enough to receive three as gifts. One from my brother-in-law, one from a friend and one from one of my students. I really like the unusual shape of the mugs and I love the sentiments on them. Here is my current collection:
An Emma Bridgewater tea set is definitely on my wish list! My favourite is probably the polka dots. I am lucky enough to live near to the actual factory so get to have a rummage in the factory shop sometimes! Often just as good and you can get a little bargain or two. I love giving her items as presents as they definitely seem like something special.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this post! It does seem a little random but I guess some of these topics will be a little different. It allows us all to get to know each other a little better which is great! I'd love to see your favourite mugs or what is currently in your cup.
