Tea time, black hat and details.

Merry Midwinter, everyone, and thank you for your comments and good wishes.

1. Nick's tea comes with a timer to show him the proper time to take the infuser out of the pot. The teapot is glass so one can enjoy the gold-red colour of the tea.

2. A bhutanese felt hat with rain-diverting tentacles has appeared in my father's study. Coming home after my parents have been away is a game of spot the difference. There are new bells hanging on striped cords, and baskets hanging where there were none before.

3. The Mother has put decorations in all our bedrooms. Mine is the pink polar bear, a sheep with dangly legs and a pair of gold musical instruments. She says it because we're not having stockings this year.

  1. I am disappointed that the link in item #2 takes us to a dissertation on Bhuttan, not diverting head gear.

  2. Hey that's funny! Everytime I go home, I have to play spot the difference too (and this even if my parents have been away, 'coz there's usually a gap of a 2-3 months between visits)... and I must say I'm rather good at playing this game at home :-)
