The lovely cup of tea!
When my sister, Maxine and I were younger, we’d go to our Nanna’s house regularly – telling her all of our secrets – and those of our parents! – and generally talking far too much, normally about things we shouldn’t!
Nanna was so very calm, kind and funny – and always had the kettle on ready to make us a , “lovely cup of tea” to make the world seem better. Many troubles, some real and most imaginary, were, ”put right” over a cuppa!
Maxine and I had our own china cup and saucer: Maxine”s was rose coloured and mine, lemon. For years, we believed that the only way to take tea, was from a ”proper” china cup! Coming from the North East of England, born to a normal working class family, this crockery was SO posh – and we loved it!
Yesterday, I ventured to Peggy’s Garden Café in Peyia, to meet a friend who was sadly held up so I ordered a cup of tea -and was thrilled when it arrived in a beautiful, china cup and saucer! Just lifting the cup , brought back so very many memories of Nanna, my childhood and made me reflect on how time is flying by.
I felt at peace for that brief time, sitting with my cuppa and would recommend the experience to anyone who visits Peyia!
