Happily rambling, tea and lost followers

Sometimes I really enjoy having a good ramble (By "ramble" I mean talking wildly and happily about a bunch of totally random things without even pausing to take a breather). Last night was one of those moments. While mid-ramble The Boyf stopped me for a second and I was reminded of how awesome he is by a short conversation that went something like this --
The Boyf: honey, you do realise you've been rambling to me non-stop for a while now, right?
Me: *smiles* yes, can I carry on a bit longer
The Boyf: of course *laughs*

Lately I really love tea. Somehow even the appearance of tea makes me feel calmer. I guess thats why alot of people go make some tea in stressful times. Right now I am mainly sipping organic rooibos (aka redbush) tea and English breakfast tea. I am also loving teapots. I think we all should use teapots more often.

On a random note: Yesterday I lost 2 followers..it happens ;)

Have a fabulous Tuesday!

  7. I would love to collect teapots. TSC won't let me though. Probably a good thing ;-)

    for me it's the ritual of tea drinking more than the tea itself that's so magical. I think the Japanese can teach us lots about that.

  8. Dont think I've lost any followers yet but maybe I've just bored them all into a coma! lol. Don't worry about those who follow or don't because your blog is a personal thing to you. You can't please everyone all the time but you can write about what you like.

  11. Ugh don't you just hate it when folks hit that unsubscribe button??? Like seriously, you can't take away your devotion and love. I'm just too fragile for that kinda shit. Also ... do you think you could write a blog post on where to find an awesome pair of shorts or mini-skirts???

  12. I still heart your blog! those other people suck.
    I don't even drink tea but I love teapots...is it sad to put coffee in there?

  13. Boo for the 2 who left! If it's any consolation, you have 20 times more followers than I do :) I have more people following me on twitter than on my blog - what does this say? Maybe I ramble on for too long? *ain't that the truth, sista smile*

    Happy Tuesday, Brazen!

  15. Then you should def go to Nigiro in de waterkant! Its an amazing tea sanctuary:)

  16. I think the concept of followers, and that we list them on our pages, is actually pretty distracting. Yes, blogs desire an audience, but specifically how many people are in that audience... why does that matter so much? Naturally I have 12.

  17. Well they may have just chosen to follow anonymously. But I'm sorry. I know the elation of finding a new followe- losing them for me... would be rather a sad occasion- glad you handle it better than I

    I ramble too. A lot. Its just when I am quiet I am thinking and then I like to release the information to make space for more opinions etc.

    Tea- well Rooibos yes!

  20. I'm not even sure if I have any regular followers out there at all. How do you find out anyway. Sometimes I think I'm talking to the wall(or the rock), but that's ok, because it's somewhere for me to keep my thoughts an creations tidy anyway.

  21. i tend to prattle my mouth off when i am nervous. not at all good for job interviews!

    those 2 who dropped out - sorry for them!

  22. I like your ramblings - especially when you go on about GG :D :D and anyway for someone who rambles on you still make plenty of sense

    You lose two and shall gain four more :)))

  23. I think that's why I have a boyfriend, so there is someone who I can ramble to who pretends to listen.

  26. It wasn't me that unfollowed you! :) Are you using feedburner? I know that sometimes the numbers changes everyday but it's not 100% accurate.

  27. It would seems that teapots are the new black - my sister has started collecting them. It's very hard to find an interesting teapot...
