I love the brilliant @albionteaco and admire their work ethic immensely. Not only do they offer organic ethically sourced tea, but they place social and ethical consideration at the heart of their business which is highly commendable. Right now they need our help to raise funds which will go towards establishing their own work space and help the aging foster youth crisis. Kindly head to and donate. Your support would be invaluable. Thank you #savealbion

Sentinels of yore...

Have a lovely bank holiday 😘❀️

Elusive sun. It has been quite cloudy lately so whenever there is sunshine it’s time for photos πŸ’• I must confess I still haven’t read the Cursed Child. Hoping to catch the play someday ☺️

β€œIn the light of eternity, time casts no shadow. Your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. But what is it that the old women see? We see necessity, and we do the things that must be done. Young women don’t seeβ€”they are, and the spring of life runs through them. Ours is the guarding of the spring, ours the shielding of the light we have lit, the flame that we are. What have I seen? You are the vision of my youth, the constant dream of all my ages. Here I stand on the brink of war again, a citizen of no place, no time, no country but my own … and that a land lapped by no sea but blood, bordered only by the outlines of a face long-loved.” ~ Diana Gabaldon, Written in My Own Heart's Blood

Cupa Ti (favourite cup of tea) for the #albionscottishchallenge
I am a huge fan of hot chocolate ever since I was a kid. Something so comforting about having a mug ☺️ I have also grown deeply fond of tea over the years and my favourite teas are those with cinnamon and spice. I adore masala chai especially in the fall β˜•οΈ This is a lovely blend featuring earl grey and cloves πŸƒπŸŒΈπŸƒπŸŒΈπŸƒπŸŒΈπŸƒπŸŒΈπŸƒ

A dreary Monday 🌧 How are you all doing? Today’s prompt is what makes you happy #albionscottishchallenge I love visiting secondhand book stores and browsing through their stacks in peace. It’s how I found this beauty ❀️ Just a few hours away from the demands of life... utter bliss πŸ˜‚ Slainte Mahth!

Found this hardcover at an amazing price! It is easier in the eyes compared to the paperback. Can’t wait to finish this beauty ❀️ #riddlesteashoppe
