Stillness prevails in the snow

Its been awhile since I posted, well on here anyhow, keeping three blogs going is like a chinese acrobat balancing the saucers on poles !!.

However today the snow bought with it an unexpected surprise, space, time to watch the stillness out of the window, that kind of dead sound that only snow can produce that seems to permeate everything and bring it to a standstill.  I love it and found time to phone a dear friend who I havent spoken to in along while.

Its been a strange week, everyday very full, putting a presentation together, meeting suppliers, finalising designs to place on order, getting organised for my buying trip to Amsterdam tomorrow.  The icing on this proverbial gateaux is full and thick but the cherry on the top just had to be when I pulled my left shoe from my bag and left the huge cumbersome boot and crutches behind me.

Sitting here this afternoon sipping my Paul D’arco tea, the taste of which I have now become accustomed to, I read about a tea atelier in New York called Bellocq. So I looked it up……….  such wonderful names and blends take a look here  http://www.bellocq.com/

 

nothing can beat this

Time for a beak, sitting in front of the computer all day, more and more I seem to sit here for days on end.  A welcome break was required and a welcome  cup of tea and accompanying  biscuit, cant be beaten, especially if the biscuit is a McVities Digestive.

I heard from the horses mouth that McVitie, although they make digestives for many own brand companies, they do not use their “secret” recipe for anyone else but themselves.  No wonder any other make seems inferior………  and they have been making them since the late 1800’s!  When I took this image with my iphone yesterday I hadnt actually eaten a biscuit in a long, long time.  I had totally forgotten just how delicious digestives are, there perfect sweetness, not to sugary and sickly, their crumbly textture, no wonder they are a no.1 best selling biscuit.  Of course they make a chocolate covered version, introduced in the 1920’s, and I love chocolate but for me the unadorned  plain round disc’s golden hue wins everytime
