Living in my house without anything functional like kitchen stuff or furniture is kind of like camping. And to my mind it’s the best kind of camping because there is a warm shower and proper shelter. This is especially gratitude-inducing since it’s been raining since yesterday.
On my trip to Kmart last night I bought a bowl, some cutlery and a saucepan. I also bought breakfast food at the supermarket. So this morning, even though I have no furniture, I was able to put on a breakfast tea party.
Strangely enough, in the very few boxes I’ve moved in I found two teapots – one with matching tea cups! I can’t make a standard mug of tea, but I can put on a tea party.
I was the only guest to this morning’s breakfast tea party. I thought I should troubleshoot before I start inviting others. Also, at this stage I’m limited to invited only people comfortable sitting on my bedroom floor because it’s the only inhabited space in the house.
On a side note, I bought Nature’s Cuppa Earl Grey tea at the supermarket yesterday. The brand name put me off a bit, but it was the best priced AND fairtrade so I couldn’t pass it up. It’s nice! And a third of the price of Lipton.
Is this the end of Where Is Sarah? the kind-of-travel-blog and the beginning of Where Is Sarah? the inappropriately titled consumer advice blog? Let’s hope not. I’ll ease up on supermarket recommendations in the future.
