A nice cup of tea. “How can hot tea be refreshing? Why do you want tea when you’re thirsty?” Because, child, tea is refreshing, made with tealeaves, strong, no sugar, tea poured first not milk… a nice cup of tea.
When did I start drinking tea? Maybe when I left home and was a student in a so-called flat but actually a bedsit, and I made friends who drank tea. I would have also met tea bags, instant coffee and powdered milk, but maybe it was when I married we started making leaf tea in a pot, drinking it together.
April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
