Today I am grateful for safe return from holiday and for a brief breather before the usual craziness of usual year begins.

Today I am grateful to my husband for adding improvements to the kitchen and displaying lots of gift wooden trinkets that had previously had no home.
Today I am grateful to my Mom and to my brother’s apple orchard for the dried apples with which I made a drink today.

Today I am grateful for the safe return of our daughter from Half Term.
Today I am grateful for two things: how nice my holiday was and how nice it is to be back home. Purr…
Today I am grateful to my Mom for giving us her classic porcelain coffee set. I remember it back for as long as I can remember myself: it’s always sat in our glass display cabinet at home. Despite my protests, my Mom gave it to us. It’s got tiny cups, tiny saucers for them, a slim and tall coffee pot, on the lid of which there is a little nod, to grab the top of the pot as you pour coffee, so that the lid does not come off. There is a short and plump sugar bowl and a matching creamer. Drinking coffee with it feels so civilised.
And on every item there is some mysterious design that has bothered me since childhood. I still cannot figure out what it is. I have decided when I was a girl that it was a broken old African tree – and I have not been able to come up with a better solution since.
