After an 8 hour journey down to the lovely St Ives all I could think about was catching up with friends and having a nice cup of tea. Our friends helped us unpack the car which was then parked in the designated space. I had safely packed a small collection of teabags just for me as an emergency if needed. The kettle was dutifully put on for me with a mug so that I could relax and enjoy a nice cuppa before going out. Disaster struck, my secret pack up of tea was nowhere to be found. I frantically emptied all of the bags which were rechecked but nothing. So instead I had a mug of hot water before heading out.
Once in town the plan was to have a few drinks before going out for a meal. My friends waited whilst I made a mad dash into the local co-op to get some tea. We were only in St Ives for a few days but this girl has to have her tea. I found the section straight away, luckily there was a good selection. I grabbed 2 boxes of Twinings one earl grey for me, english breakfast for everyone else and a pack of co-op’s own double mint fair trade tea to share.
We then went on to enjoy a few drinks in the local pubs before heading out for our meal. During this time I had my co-op carrier bag full of tea with me. After a lovely night out we arrived back at the house where I immediately put the kettle on. I emptied the carrier bag then enjoyed a nice cup of tea with my friends before retiring to bed.
