Join me for a cup of tea.
I have been all caught up in life lately, and I need a nice sit down, and a soothing brew to help me gather my thoughts. This is a picture of my gorgeous new kettle. The old one was leaking water all over the kitchen bench, and I was getting a bit scared it would electrocute my one day, so it has been replaced with this timeless little number. A whistling, stovetop kettle.
It is so much fun to pop it on the stove, and wander off, to be called back by the charming whistle when it is tea time. I am enjoying the ritual of it all. Putting the kettle on is slightly more than simply flicking a switch.
The kitten is not so impressed, however. The first time she heard it she ducked and scurried off into a corner until she was certain the threat had moved on. Yes, we all laughed at her, adding insult to injury.
