The loveliest teapot​​

When I was in North Wales I just KNEW that I wanted out of Swindon. I’ve never been enamoured with the town but the people and my hobbies kept me there… but really, I wasn’t there. We always took the opportunity to head out somewhere, anywhere to get away from it as much as possible.  I just felt it was time to go, we weren’t happy, we weren’t motivated nor did we like the attitudes of most.

Casually browsing one day, I spotted this tea cosy in Betws-y-Coed last year where I’d parked up with my van for a few nights. I told myself it was for our “new” house where ever that would be when I finished course…

It began a goal, a token, a physical commitment that action needed to be taken. Upon my return to Swindon for months, it sat in a visible place on our table to quietly remind me of the need to get away from this place that made my miserable… I would know when I’d have found the right place when I could find a tea pot to accompany it…

Fast forward to now, to today, to a surprise of a tea pot from my other half for my birthday – a sunflower yellow one infact that has already been put to use!

What a beautiful thing!

It feels like we’ve finally “made it“. The commitment to leave so desperately has been accomplished. We’ve gone, we’re not going back! This feels better than a medal at the end of a race!

My little tea pot is just perfect.

  1. The color of a handful of successfully made soap green wu ashes should be black with a light blue inside and a medium blue in color. The grain texture ofAuthentic Purple Clay Teapot the raw material is different from that of other mixed black materials, which are dull in color and weak in texture.
