Poetry Teatime: The Double P Curse
Most of my life I’ve been living under the power of the Double P curse. Anyone else crippled by the combined efforts of Perfectionism and Procrastination? Well over a year ago my best friend introduced me to the lovely Brave Writer. Being a long time fan of tea parties and gifts I was immediately intrigued by Tuesday Teatime (or rather Tisane Time in our home).
P & P kept this simple treat at a distance as I felt compelled to go all out but not the time or energy to make it happen. Thankfully the voice of Truth assured me that a simple mug, muffins from the freezer, a TV tray and random poetry books were more than enough. The kids loved it. Even my reluctant reader wanted to keep reading. Victory on so many levels.
Yet, my ego was still holding out for the China and linens so fast forward a few months and invite some friends.
Now don’t even ask me how much longer it’s taken me to actually compose and share this journey with you. lol
All the best in this journey,

I need to know where she got that fantastic teapot! My mother-in-law (hopefully isn’t reading this!) runs a tea room and quilts and would love that!! (Hello birthday present!)
