Not only the rain hasn’t stopped, (major flooding across the UK) but we also have a tube strike. Yes we do- the boys and girls from London Underground are on strike. I cycled to work this morning. It’s a short bike ride, but still arrived drenched having closely missed, encounters with death on at least four occasions.
Even worse, my hair has reached new heights of frizzidom- though at least the all important hair appointment has been booked. (Stylish and well groomed in the rain? Here)
So- about to have a cup of tea to recover. And a chocolate fondant- why not? Live dangerously I say…
I look forward to my return trip home, that should be a real treat too.
Still, peace of mind comes from within they say… A cup of tea and carry on. I ve also discovered that knitting is very relaxing. Ordered some lovely (and ethical) angora wool from here, will keep you posted how it goes. If nothing else, we can all laugh at my efforts.
Relax & enjoy.
lady Sarah’s DIY rose tea blend.
Did you know? It’s easy to make your own strong blend of rose tea. Get some good quality, black china leaves, mix with with dried rose petals ratio 5:1 (1 part rose petals/5 black tea, though this is variable. You can buy dried organic rose petals from Neal’s Yard, but I make my own as I know they are organic. Add 2 drops of pure aromatherapy rose oil. This is quite expensive, and you need to ensure its pure. Shake and keep in a tightly closed tea caddy for at least a couple of weeks for the oil to infuse through; and work it’s magic. Pure heaven!
