Having this the first time today put me in a really good mood and I may have been a bit too optimistic about spring being around the corner, because I got dressed and headed out for a rather long walk to David’s tea. I teetered pretty much all the way there, especially because I seem to have like the worst balance ever as soon as a hint of slush or ice appears, and of course Mr. keychange just breezed right along no problem, so looks like it’s just me who turns into a ninety year old when there’s snow and ice. But seriously, people should really be clearing the sidewalks in front of their driveway if they’re able to. Thank heavens I have the most patient, attentive guide dog in the world. He would slow down before any icy patch, and then carefully guide me over it, pausing every time I hesitated in case I needed to right my balance or flail, before tentatively resuming along, then picking up speed again once the coast was clear. I trust him with my life.
After a dinner of British fare, we headed to the movies where we watched Philomena, which was absolutely fantastic. Judi dench is out of this world, and I really need to see more movies with her in it.
Came home and decided to have another cup. This one brewed slightly weaker than that from this afternoon, although there was a touch more water. Still delectable though, and I’ll likely be round to DT for a tin in the reasonably near future. I was talking to one of the SAs at DT about how annoying it is to become really fond of a seasonal tea that you may never see again, and his answer was: “Yeah, I hear you. What I do is drink that tea again and again and then horde it, and by the time it’s on its way out, I may even be sick of it.” which I actually thought made sense LOL.
