A cup of tea with me

What are you having? French Earl Grey, Oolong, English breakfast? Don't worry it may as well be T2 here - there's something for everyone.  How about you have a nice cup of Lapsang Souchong with me and we will get down to business.


Based in Sydney with a mini urban garden, some funky housemates, too many hobbies and a PhD in the works I'm pottering through life!
I'm a curious being, I love nothing more than pondering the world around me!
How does crackling puff? What type of fungi is that? How are batteries recycled? Why aren't my cucumbers cucumbering? Where's the best coffee in Sydney? How do I cook with endives?   

Things that I now know are: How to record with Souncloud, How to use some tip top picture editing programs, What domain hosting is all about, What the heck SEO is!  Why do I know all this great stuff now? 
So lately I have been taking part in the Blog with Pip course, meeting lots of lovely ladies and learning oodles of information about the blogosphere.  This post is linking with her website Meet me at Mikes and other students or Pipsters as we call ourselves- pop over, introduce yourselves and have some more tea!

    1. Ohh I miss the Melbourne weather - So perfect for wooly scarfs, bright tights, cozy coats and funky beanies! Bit sad it doesn't get so cold in sydney (only a bit though!)

    1. T2 makes a yummy one! It has flowers in it! (It also makes you want cheese all the time and drink wine at lunch)

  11. I love your tea spot and your garden, but I'd also love to know your name. I can't find it anywhere on your about page or front page of your blog. If that is what you intended, no worries. But I'd love to know if you wanted to share. I'm a keen gardener too so please keep the posts coming.
