Tea and sympathy


I've not seen the film, but tea and sympathy is what's happening at our home this morning, on account of a husband who rolled in at gone 2:30 AM after a long night out with the lads. Said husband keeps forgetting he's not 25 any more, and as a result he has the flu (ahem) most Saturday mornings. Today he woke up at 12:08, had a Lemsip (paracetamol in a cup to those of you not familiar with British medical jargon) and went back to bed. He's just woken up again and made himself a jumbo mug of tea - because a cuppa makes everything better.

He saw me take a photo of his mug, but I didn't tell him I was blogging about it. Shhhh!

Yes! Serve him right having the "flu" after last night (or this morning)! Don't tell him I said that, shhhhh! :)

P/s: Love the mug, I like Taz

@ Shanny: It'll be our secret ;-)

@ Lemon: Thanks, it's a funny kind of day today!

Men are slow learners. I should send the Monkey and his drum set over there!

I am coming down with a cold and would like you to come make me a nice cuppa, please!

What a secret - I promise not to say anything to anyone...... but please keep us posted :-)

@ Karen: Hubby claims he lacks the ability to learn, which is why his Saturday mornings are always the same! However, if Monkey and his drum set paid us a visit every Saturday, perhaps he'd rethink his position. Now that's a thought. Hehe.

@ Renny: I appreciate your discretion ;-)

I love tea more than coffee. Hey, to your question on your blog, that was just an art piece :)

This must be a special hangover edition of the piggy flu. Very dangerous, he needs a shot with a very thick needle !!

Tinsie said...

@ Exposemaximum: I like tea and coffee equally, but in England, tea is better.

Just an art piece? And I had such high expectations!!

@ Gattina: Haha I couldn't be so cruel :-D

I sympathise with said Hubby! I went for a leaving do on thurs and also had the 'flu' the next morning.. at 35, i can no longer hack it either... For me, the only cure is a can of coke at 08:30am :-P

Tinsie said...

A coke? Not a cuppa and a bacon sarnie?
