It was my son's birthday on the weekend and to celebrate we headed to the races in Port Augusta to see their horses race as part of the Port Augusta Cup.
I can not explain how windy it was all I can say is that when I got home it felt like I had spent the day in the spin cycle of the washing machine and having curly hair well lets say my hair style for the day was pretty wild.
Looking around at the beautiful hats that were on display it occurred to me that the racing hat wasn't only about style, colour and fashion it had a practical purpose which I will definitely look into for the next time we head to a race track!
These are some photos I took
Throughout my life the question "Would you like a cup of tea?" has been the answer for good news, bad news or for when friends or family drop in. Some of my most precious memories have been with both my Grandmothers who always had beautiful tea cups and there were many long chats about life, football and laughs over a cup of tea in those beautiful tea cups. There is something about a cup of tea, it can calm the most stressful moment and help celebrate the most exciting one. So many moments shared with my sons over a cup of tea from when they were very young. It always seemed like a cup of tea will make things right or it was an opportunity to have some time together. I have a lovely collection of tea cups which my family have help me build on and I suspect the collection will grow, well I hope so!
I have so many wonderful memories over a cup of tea including only just this week with my dear school friend who dropped in and over a cup of tea in those beautiful tea cups we started planning an exciting business partnership.
I just love that the kettle is often turned on even before the question is asked "Would you like a cup of tea?"
I chose black & white photos of my tea cups, I am not sure why it might be because the colour comes from the people you share a cup of tea with
