I went into a downward spiral yesterday, felt sad and tired thinking about recent events, so I slept… a LOT.
Today I feel great! I woke up about 8 (after having slept 12 hours) and dusted, tidied and scrubbed the house, did a couple loads of laundry and with much glee opened up in haste the big box the courier arrived with marked ‘fragile’. It was my vintage mis-matched trio sets….something to serve tea and cake on at my 1940s Supper Club (coming soon). The little tea cups are so dainty, so fancy, so clinky (you know that sound when you place the tea cup back on the saucer)..
And then at midnight, when I should have been going to bed but just wasn’t tired, I wanted to christen my new cups and plates and what better way than with cake. I used the last of my sugar and most of what was left of my fat rations to make an eggless sponge which I sandwiched with a mock cream and homemade jam…. no more desserts or baking now until Tuesday.
So here I am at 1 am, drinking tea in a cute little 1940s tea cup, enjoying a slice of sweet eggless sponge (that didn’t rise very well but I will still eat and enjoy) and I’m feeling rather happy
It’s been a good day
