A little Tea solves all

I have been living life these past couple of weeks. Despite the few illnesses I have battled, it has been so relaxed and creative and just wonderful. I had a lovely morning with Nicola the other day, we sat and drank tea, hot chocolates, spiced lattes. We nibbled on Blueberry muffins and cheese paninis. We spoke about our 2013 plans, and planned some adventures. We wrote to far away friends. We doodled.
It was just so lovely. I miss hanging out with this one. We inspire each other to be more creative. Though our work hours clash too much.
We spent about four hours in Starbucks. We watched people come and go. We listened to their stories. It almost felt like we had no place to be. No plans. It felt like the good old days, the days at university when we had handed in our projects and we had our time back.
Gosh, such a long time ago. 
I have to go back to work tomorrow. I am really not looking forward to it. It has been far too lovely being off. Though I have plans for this year, and my boring admin job will be no more. This year is for good things only. Positive thoughts, dreams, ideas, wishes to all come true.

    1. It was so good, minus the sicky-feelings/ill bug.

      I think it was just the day I needed to pull myself out of the moping about.

  9. Charlotte reading your blog makes me believe all is right in the world, it is such a place of calm and all things nice. Maybe if everyone drank tea the world would be a much better place for all of us! Thank you for keeping me sane with your blog posts :) I love them.
