I'm a big fan of tea. I think it might be at least partly due to being British. ;)
I love a nice cuppa when I get up, and - most days - drink several more throughout the day. I don't do coffee, only tea. But my drinking habits aren't actually the reason for this post. Nope! The reason for this post is for me to have the oppertunity to show you the kettle I got a couple of weeks ago. To me it's my new kettle, but many of you will consider it an old kettle. After all, technically, that's what it is. It's one of those whistling kettles that you put on the cooker.
I like my new kettle. I enjoy hearing it whistling away happily to itself when the water is hot enough for me to make my cup of tea. I've wanted one of these kinds of kettles for a little while, so I'm glad I was able to find one without paying too much for it. And Kelly likes it too, so that's a plus. :)
This mug though isn't new. It's far from new. I've had it since when I was in Canada. I'm not sure where it came from... It may have belonged to my mother-in-law originally. All I know is it came back from Canada with me, and I've used it regularly ever since. Bearing in mind it's been almost six years since I left Canada and came back home to Wales. Like I said, it's far from new.
There are often disputes about what the face looks like. Some people say it looks like it's screaming, others say it looks shocked. Either way, I always liked it, and I can always tell which mug it is, because the nose sticks out, so it usually gets refered to as either "the face cup" or "the one with the nose" if - or when - I ask for it, or someone is asking me if that's the mug I want to use. Whichever you think it should be... It's a mug with a mug on it. LOL!
So, here's the kettle. Here's my mug... It's time for tea... Who's making it?
