The Story of the Sad, Cold Tea

1. Boil kettle

2. Place green tea bag in favourite mug

3. Pour boiling hot water over said tea bag into said mug

4. Notice delicious amounts of steam flowing into the cool early morning air in kitchen

5. Busy yourself with Baby and no-nappy-time (Oh you are such a clever, clever little gorgeous baby rolling onto your tummy!!)

6. Return to kitchen to note lack of delicious steam

7. Enter: tepid, cold tea

8. Place tepid, cold tea in microwave

9. Pull out to note once again a delicious amount of steam flowing into the air

10. Turn to view mug from a distance with Baby in arms and note disappointing lack of steam

11. Place tepid, cold tea in microwave for a second time

12. Return to find tea still hot but an air of disgust regarding micro-waves lingers and a growing concern imagining said micro-waves running around body causing micro-wavy contamination

13. Tip micro-wave contaminated, tepid, cold tea down the sink

14. Re-fill kettle and place on stove to boil for a second time

15. Return to find kettle feeling disturbingly cool to the touch

16. Boil kettle for a third time, allowing oneself to consider carbon footprint for a brief moment only

17. Place fresh green tea bag into favourite mug

18. Pour boiling hot water over said tea bag into said mug

19. Notice delicious amounts of steam flowing into the cool midday air in kitchen

20. DRINK!

Thank goodness for my wonderful, new, beautiful liberty print badge that arrived in my letterbox yesterday from my dearest friend E. Said badge is today being worn over stripes, to remind me of a life where people drink hot tea, the first time around, in the early morning when it is most needed. In that life, however, I didn’t have Baby to keep me warm in those cold early hours, and she didn’t have me.
