This month

Dear Bluebell Cafe in North Belfast,

Thank you very much for the pot of hot and much needed tea this morning. You were an oasis of sit down and think about nothing in the middle of a celebrate-birthdays-filled month. I do come in now and again for one of your amazing sandwiches and then I take it next door where I get my hair cut and I eat it there, breathing in the moments of manic-free hair product.

Today I had some time before moving next door and I sat down to wonder at the clock made of tea-cups, and wall of funny signs like the one above, and the trio of folk at the table next to mine. That was one fascinating bunch! I wonder did the lady on the right begin to see her partner's money as her own?

I am three birthday celebrations through out of four this month, with the Spring Ball tomorrow night, and we had an impromptu theatre trip last night. Normal stay-at-home service will be resumed soon, but this morning I just needed tea!

Sounds like a perfect spot for tea.

On another note entirely, how ironic that you crochet left-handed! If we didn't have a huge ocean separating us, I would love to sit down with you and master the granny square.

Hang in there, birthday month is halfway over! :o)

Mags, one of the things I miss most about urban living are the cafes, tea spots, restaurants...simply a place to sit, drink a cuppa and enjoy. Your Bluebird Cafe sounds delightful; I am envious.

I love the image you create for me, of you sitting in the café with your pot of tea. I'm glad you could be alone and think about nothing. God bless you, Dear.

Happy happy birthday to the vibrant ten-year old!
You are the smartest girl ever! Ducking into teashops for a quiet breather! Brilliant!
