A couple of months ago I mentioned my strawberry tea set. And today we had tea but not in my tea set, rather in delightful Rosenthal cups.
Can anyone tell me why tea tastes so much better when drunk from a thin, bone china cup? Even a bone china mug is not as good. This is just one of several problems on my mind today.
And why does it seem OK to have a “toes up” in the afternoon when you are away from home but not when you are at home?
Can anyone tell me why tidying dishes etc around someone else’s kitchen seems less onerous than when doing the same chores at home?
And why when you are away from home, do the shops have a better choice of things than your local shops?
And why is the sky bluer, the sun warmer, the air clearer, the waves better and the sea more inviting, when you are away?
