The stuff in our cupboards says more about us than any words we can write. And a lot of that stuff has a story behind it. Take MUGS, for example, the theme of this week’s Listography from KateTakes5.
I hadn’t thought much about the vessels I drink 15 cups of tea a day from. Until now.
1. My favourite all-time mug, which is sadly broken. One of the kids accidentally broke the handle off it taking it out of the dishwasher. I suspect it was the youngest, because this mug pre-dates him. My stepdaughter and oldest son made it for me in a pottery class, before planting their paw prints on it. I couldn’t bear to throw it away, so I use it as a pen holder instead.
2. This is Dad’s Mug. A pint-sized colossus for a a proper He-Man like myself. Somehow, though, my favourite brew – Darjeeling – doesn’t quite work in it, so I reserve it for Saturday mornings with a bacon and cheese toastie.
3. Mum’s mug. Can’t remember where or how we got it, though. That’s bad, isn’t it?
4. My mug, given to me by my former work colleagues. Hilarious, no?
5. A teeny tiny mug we brought back from our honeymoon in Corsica in 2010. I’m not really sure whether it’s a mug or an egg cup, but it brings back lots of lovely memories.
