I’ve come to the conclusion that it is in fact tea that makes the world go round. Well, ok, maybe not quite, the sun and gravity have a lot to do with it, but tea definitely helps my world go round. As a mummy, my reliance on tea has increased, but really, you don’t need kiddies to rely on tea. Here are 5 reasons why…
1) Home for tea
Firstly, it’s a constant in my life, we always go home for a cup of tea, we always have and always will.
2) Tea?is most definitely needed in certain circumstances:
- after getting up in the morning, I wouldn’t function otherwise!
- going shopping, we’ll usually stop for a cup of tea (or coffee)
- with a toddler…. need I say more?! Tea and coffee make me function and survive the day! I long for that cup of tea when Toddler H has her nap…. I cling to the hope she will?nap all day for that reason – does that make me a bad mummy?
- with a baby… it’s a sleep deprived crazyness solver
- after a long night – see any of the above, or just because I’ve woken for some inexplicable reason and not been?able to sleep for 2 hours despite hubby AND toddler H sleeping soundly the whole time
- on a cold day
- on a warm day – I always thought my mum was MAD having tea on holiday or on warm days, but it is refreshing! Try it!!
- with friends when we’re letting off steam, venting about babies, lack of sleep and putting the world to rights
- after a bad day at work
- to get through a bad day at work
3) its perfect for helping to put the world to rights
I know, this kind of links to one of the posts above, but putting the world to rights and having a good old natter is such an important point and outcome of tea, it must have it’s own point too!
4) it’s calming
If anything happens in life, we have a cup of tea. Yes, sometimes it’s a wine or even champagne occasion, but usually tea comes first especially if we might have to drive!
5) it’s a boost
It gives me energy, and not it’s not just the caffeine as even decaf works! It must the the act of just sitting and drinking a nice warm drink
6) it helps me think
- give me a cup of tea and I’ll solve that problem that’s been bugging you!
- it helps me blog… it’s amazing the number of blog posts I’ve written or thought of while drinking tea
- actually it’s amazing the number of blog posts I’ve written about tea! (6 ways to have a hot cup of tea with a baby, tea and crohns disease… I’m sure there are more!)
* Please note you may substitute tea for coffee or hot chocolate and sometimes even cake or?biscuits ….
