Wishcrafting Wednesday - who do you wish to have tea with?

Well, with my morning cuppa in my hand, I popped into Jamie's studio today to see what her wishcrafting prompt was.  ' Who do you wish to have tea with?'.  Oh my!  I am British & Tea is what we do.  Its a cultural cure-all, the glue that holds us together.  We are taught how to make tea as soon as we are old enough to reach the kettle.  We know tea.  'Would you like a cup of tea?' is the very first thing you say to a guest once their feet are over the threshold.  And even if you don't then you just say yes & only drink a bit.  To say no, well, it just halts the social niceties in their tracks!  I love the ritual of tea making, it gives you something to do & say while you adjust to each other's energies.  Anyway, I digress.  Who do I wish to have tea with?


My initial reaction, which I always listen to, was ME!  I love this time of the morning, when everyone has been taken, or taken themselves, to where they need to be for the day.  And I can just sit down with a cuppa in my favourite mug and catch up with myself.  A small pause before I then get on with the rest of my morning jobs & joys.

Then, I thought about who else I would like to share a tea time with.  Grand sweeping thoughts of famous and/or inspiring people.  No-one stood out.  I realise that the person I most enjoy spending tea time when I am not in solitude, is my beloved husband.  And tonight we will be doing just that!  Tonight, we are going on a date, for the first time in I don't know how long.  We have had a dear friend staying with us for several weeks and it just occurs to us now to take advantage of some built-in babysitting!  So we will be out together.  Probably a swim & sauna followed by a cuppa at the coffee shop there.  I am sooooooo EXCITED!  Wheeeee.  A tea date with my love!
