|Lots of white space, this must be an arty shot!|
So I have coffee in the morning, and between lunch and teatime I have a long tall glass of squash. I don't love it, but it does the liquid count a lot of good. Thing is, if I'm at my desk doing something crafty, I quite often forget to drink it. Which goes a long way to illustrating my state of mind when doing book keeping or housework....sometimes I've managed 2 whole glasses! Distraction techniques... Then at day's end, Mr Dunit comes home and we have a cup of tea whilst supper's cooking. And that's the only tea I have. It's traditional English Breakfast Tea. I can't bear all the fruit flavoured tea..imagine my disappointment when they turned out to be like drinking perfume..as dry and unsweetened as fragranced water, but lovely and enticing smell and colour. What a let down. And don't point me in the direction of adding honey or something gingery or worse, something healthy...I've tried it all, and I'm petulant and childish about it now. I don't like it.
My great dislike is also my greatest first world problem; I'm ashamed but reticent: I don't like water. I'll drink a mouthful to take a pill or cure a coughing fit, but that's it. I've taught myself to drink it carbonated for the want of anything else in the pub (I drink very little alcohol) and having given up caffeine, I avoid Diet Coke which used to be my 'go to' of choice when offered a drink in a pub. Oh it's all so complicated!
So now when you see my cup on my desk, you can be at least be assured that you know why I'm drinking! And if you have any suggestions..I'll take 'em!
Joining Elizabeth et al for T Tuesday, you could too!
