If you were meeting me now, I would usher you into our lounge, take your coat and pass you the plate of cookies. We had a pudding party last night for my housemates birthday and there are plenty of sweet treats left.
If I was meeting with you now I would tell you that the new term has started. The last one of this academic year. The months have simply flown haven't they! You would probably bring up the dreaded topic of exams and I would tell you slightly embarrassed that I don't mind exams. In a way I quite like the order and structure that revision can bring and once an exam is over, that's it, no point in worrying about it! Thankfully with university exams they are marked quite quickly so no anxious waiting in the middle of August.
Oh look, the tea is nearly brewed, can I pour you a cup? As I settled myself on the sofa again I would tell you about the crafty projects I have been working on. There are two quilts in the making, one for me and one for my best friend. They are very different but I love them both. It is also a joy to have sat with my friend and cut out the pieces together. I am so excited to see it growing! Do you quilt I would ask? If you are involved in the friendship quilt I would ask you how you are getting on with that? I love the challenge it brings me each month. It's fun to think of the recipient and make something specifically for them. It's also making me try out new patterns. A block only 6 inches square is an ideal size to try new things.
As we helped ourselves to more cake I would ask you about your Easter. Did you manage to take a holiday? We had all the family at home which was lovely. We also managed to do several long walks which are just perfect in the spring weather we have been having. Leaning closer I would smile and tell you that I even got a few days working with the National Trust again. It is such a fun organisation to volunteer with and there are always exciting things happening in the office. Who wouldn't want to wear a top hat to work?
Your cup is empty, let me refill it. I would ask you about your blog and about the crafts you are involved in. I'm sure you would bring me photos of what you got up to over Easter and we would ooh and ahh over them. It's nice to sit with someone who just gets that some things have to be photographed and documented! I would burst out laughing at this thought and show you the latest 'me-zie' from the holidays. Yes, you and I know them as 'selfies' but my Granny is still determined that 'me-zie' is their proper name. Mum and Dad joined me in their first selfie. Mass hilarity was caused by this! It is fun to wonder whether there will be things my children will find amusing about my lack of technical ability!
As usual we have lost track of time chatting away. As I always say it is so good to see you.
I would walk with you the door, hugging you tightly, telling you to come again soon and thanking you for taking the time out of your day to see me. My hand carries on waving as you walk down the street and around the corner...
If you were having tea with me today, what would you tell me?
If you would like to write a "tea" post please add it to the linky at the bottom so we can all sit and share with you! The linky will be open for a week so you have plenty of time!
