Well, maybe two things.
The surefire cure for no longer being able to wear my gold jewellery is to boil it. Yes, I too raised an eyebrow at that, because most search results told me I was allergic to things like Alcohol or Chocolate and of course one mustn't fall for that hokey stuff. But I gave the boiling a go and the gold was wearable again. I'm only harping on this point in case someone out there has the same problem and might find this solution in a search. Boil the gold in water for a minute or so. BOIL THE GOLD.
And lately, over at Fun and VJs, I spotted an array of colourful glass on a shelf, and liked the look of it, so I scoured the house for anything jolly I could find and created my own burst of colour on the landing.
How uplifting a sight in the morning as one struggles toward the continental breakfast buffet.
So that's two things, and now it's time to give back. I've made the perfect rose tea, and I'd like to tell you how. No, I insist. Brew a cup of Earl Grey tea (or similar, any sort of light china tea) and add a few drops of rose water (and milk, if you like).
Why did it take years of the quest for a good rose tea for something so obvious to occur to me?
And there'll be a giveaway in the next post for even more giving back.
