Selection of poems about Friendship and tea HERE

Just a little cup and saucer 
Sitting there upon the shelf. 
Remembering what we've been through 
I smile despite myself! 
The countless chilly winter morns 
I've poured a cuppa tea 
And had my quiet time "alone": 
My teacup, God, and me. 
The precious friends
who've shared their hearts, 
That teacup in their hands.... 
How much that friendship has meant, 
Our Father understands!

Hello everyone from a very hot Kilcoole
Sorry no pictures this week, as I can not find my camera lead to    up load any images, will have a good tidy this evening, 
when I've finished cutting for Sunday.
I am way behind with parties this week.
I think its a nice cold salad for Sunday girls,
as the last thing we need is the oven on while we are crafting
if any of you have a fan, ( that are coming) please can you bring it along, as I have tried everywhere and can't get one.
looking forward to a nice relaxed sparkly day
