Ah, Monday. I forgot to turn on my alarm and slept an hour and a half longer than I should have. This meant my daughter also overslept and missed the bus. By the time lunches were packed, kids were finally at school and I drove my husband to work (we only have one car and I need to do the weekly shopping today) I was feeling rather frazzled.
Rather then head straight to the grocery store I decided to come home to make a cup of tea and get myself properly ready for the day (hair, make-up, something other than sweatpants…). This turned out to be a good decision for a few reasons. First, I desperately wanted tea and a moment of quiet. Second, I looked like I just rolled out of bed which is not an appealing look for me. In fact it’s, um, scary. Third, I noticed that my daughter forgot her lunch, so now I can run it up to her before I go shopping.
The high point of my day so far is this tea. It’s hearty and full of malt and bread notes. I added sugar and cream, and I’ve been happily sipping on it while getting ready for Round 2 of my day.
Hope your Monday is going better than mine. Whether it is or isn’t I hope you have really good tea to drink today.
