Spent about an hour rearranging my tea caddies. Was told I have too many teas. Bless the silly munchkin, they say the darndest things. ;D

Too many teas? Pah, cannae be possible. Mind you, rearranging tea caddies is a bit like lifesize cupboard tetris.
Clumsily walking a narrow path and getting most of it wrong, but I'm still walking...

Agreed, a woman can't have too many teas on hand (or too many lip balms, but that's another story). Although this rearrangement had to do with bags into caddies, not the caddies themselves, so it wasn't nearly as much fun as tetris. :D

Sometimes the strangest things cheer me up. For example, the knowledge of my mortality. That some day all of this will be over. Which is true.

This is war.
It is the most important skill in the nation.
It is the basis of life and death.
It is the philosophy of survival or destruction.
You must know it well.

Finding a single-volume edition of LotR on a charity book shelf for 50p. Now the young one can read it without endangering my (Fellowship collectible) or his father's (anniversary hardback) copies.
