:: Breakfast For One…?

today's breakfast
click for image source!
I am going to start a new routine. It’s a bit about a tray of tea and toast. And I’m going to alternate it with tea and porridge. I’m going to make it a bit fancy.  There may be floral cups, embroidered napkins, doyleys even.  Yes?

There’s something about breakfast on a tray that is sort of decadent and spoil-y.  I like the special-ness of it. I like the ceremony. I”m going to dress my tray every day, and I’m going to wander away from The Fray, as they leaf through the depressing newspaper, spill Weetbix and drip milk on their novels (true!)

I’m going to find a quiet spot and have a bit of tray service just for me.  I think it’s going to be a tiny clutch at a calm start to the day. A clutch worth reaching for!  Are you in?

xx Pip

    I always make myself a tray for breakfast. I brew a pot of tea in a beautiful Royal Albert teapot and teacup & saucer, I use cloth napkins and one flower from my garden. I do my morning pages and meditate over breakfast. It's my calm before the storm. You're going to love the 'me' time Pip. Can't wait to see photos if you post them.

    Great Idea Pip, thanks!
    I have been seeking a solution to the morning drama of trying to juggle/wrangle/harass/organise my 3 big kids to their 3 different schools each day…whilst still getting someone to empty the dishwasher! Removing myself to a quiet brekky spot for a minute, may be just the answer to restore my pep/patience! 🙂 Mel

    Oh, I am totally in! I've never been a big breakfast person and have lately been enjoying having a regular bite in the mornings.

    I've also been searching for the perfect serving/breakfast tray for AGES! One day I'll find the one… one day! 🙂

    This is a must-do for me most days…my quiet treat at the start of a busy day. Pink tray, nice blue & white china, tasty tea. All good.

    How civilised old thing, count me in. Although I'll be eating mine whilst you're eating your supper, how queer 🙂

    I'd highly recommend sneaking out the front gate (quietly closing it behind you), and take in the sunshine on the footpath. Passers-by are always more pleasant than family at 6am…
