Overheard in a Tea Room…

‘I do wish this teapot would pour like a dream!

Try one of these scones, I can pass you the cream’.

‘Well, thank you, but no, for I must watch my weight,

Just look at those slices of damson and date!’


; Just look at that table: I say, what a sight –

It looks like those women are starting a fight!’

‘I’ll wait for the cuckoo clock – mustn’t be late:

It’s supper at seven and soiree at eight.’


‘No manners these days – not a ‘thank you’ or ‘please’,

Those women are worse than the zoo’s chimpanzees’.

‘I do love Darjeeling and jasmine at four –

Tea settles the stomach; I’ll pour us some more’,


‘I really can’t take it – I wish I could stay:

The noise from that table will drive me a …!’

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
