One day Nora decided to sample more than tea bags. A few hours later she wished she’d hadn’t. I did too.
“We can’t have the dog gulping down everything we put into the compost bin,” I said. “She’s making herself sick.”
So my hero husband Andy drove to the hardware store where he bought some top quality aviary wire.
“I’ll hammer it all the way around the bin,” said Andy. “That will stop Nora stealing our compost. ” He grinned.
But his grin disappeared when a hole appeared. All it took was a few snaps of her wire-cutter teeth, and Nora was able to resume fishing for tea bags.
We’ve given up. Nora hasn’t. Her tea bag collection continues to grow.
I have a collection too. Not tea bags but Pi. Would you like to see my collection?
I have a basic everyday Pi…
… and a beautiful Pi.
How about a real meat Pi? (This is our favourite Pi.)
I’ve collected the director’s slice of Pi…
… and a mile of Pi (for very hungry people)…
I have the making of Pi…
… as well as the musical version.
Just like Nora’s tea bag collection, my Pi collection isn’t finished. I have my eye on more Pi. What shall I add next?
I like Pi. My daughters Sophie and Gemma-Rose like Pi too. Do you?
All this talk of Pi is making my stomach rumble. I rather fancy a slice of pie. And a cup of tea. Pi(e) and tea. Doesn’t that sound good? Our dog thinks so. She’s grinning.
Soon there’ll be one more tea bag in Nora’s collection.
|The Angels of Abbey Creek|
Did you know my children’s novel, The Angels of Abbey Creek, can be read while drinking tea? Tea and Angels is the perfect combination.
And did you know tea makes numerous appearances in my book? Mum and Dad drink lots of it. So does Father Brown. He ‘runs on tea’. Mum makes sure he has an extra-large mug when he comes for morning tea.
Do you like tea?
