Merely a House

A home without tea
is merely a house.

  1. Good Morning!

    Already finished my first cup of tea! Just curious... how did you first come to have such a love of tea? It is such an important part of your life and of your sister's. Did you both love tea parties as little girls?

    Kindly, ldh

  10. I certainly agree with you on that one! In Ireland it is considered the height of rudeness to not offer a guest tea and equally rude for the guest to refust it! So it is a measure of our hospitality and gets a bit parodied in sitcoms like Fr. Ted where Mrs. Doyle cajoles her guests at the parochial house on Craggy Island to partake of a cuppa with her insistent "go on go on go on"!!! Worth YouTube checking if you don't know the programme!
