I asked blogger Fiona Longmuir to describe her day in tea...
Do you have a daily routine?
Please, tea is my daily routine. Some people measure time in hours, I measure it in cups of tea.
I wake up, usually late, throw on some clothes, skip the makeup and sit down to enjoy the first cup of tea of the day. Then it's off to catch the dreaded commuter bus to work. I don't really drink tea at work, because I'm still a temp, and knowing when you can reasonably ask to be put on the tea round is one of those weird awkard adult social situations. In the evenings, I like to curl up with the boyfriend, the blog and some crappy TV. The glamour never ends, people.
When's your first cup of tea?
First thing! I genuinely can't function without a cup of tea in the morning, I get so grumpy. I like to sleep late, so I'm usually running about like a mad thing in the morning, but I always take a quiet 15 minutes to enjoy my cup of tea.
What's your preferred tea-making ritual?
Bat eyelashes at boyfriend. Receive cup of tea. Best.
Did you drink tea as a child?
Yes! I used to get it put in my baby bottle, not a word of a lie. And I had this totally sweet colour changing cup…why do kids get all the good stuff?
Confess. Can you say no to biscuits or cake?
Definitely not. I'm a massive sweet tooth. Bring me a packet of ginger nuts and you'll have a friend for life.
Which is your favourite cuppa of the day?
During the week, I love coming home, kicking off my shoes and relaxing with a cuppa. But at the weekends, I always make tea and pancakes for breakfast and we eat them in bed. This is basically everything I dreamed adulthood would be.
Is there one break that's non-negotiable?
The morning one! See aforementioned grumpiness.
Milk or tea in the cup first?
Milk! I never know how much space to leave otherwise. This is a subject which causes much consternation in our household...
And finally, any projects or news you’d like to talk about?
I'm actually running the Race for Life in just over a month, which is really exciting! Me and my sister do it every year, in honour of our mum, who is a totally awesome cancer survivor. It's given me some pretty crazy memories, from running it last year with 9 women and a dog, to starring in a national media campaign dressed as Hit Girl from Kickass!
I'm hoping to maybe throw a blogger event at some point this summer to raise money for Cancer Research UK so keep your eyes peeled for that. In the meantime, if you'd like to support us, you can do so here: www.justgiving.com/sister-act-iv. We raised over £1000 last year and I'm hoping to smash that this year!
