Weekend Writing Prompt #121 – Teapot

Sammi’s word prompt for this weekend is TEAPOT and we have 48 words to play with.

When I saw the prompt today, I immediately thought of my MIL.
Gone are the days of the china teapot and tea service, but she was the perfect candidate and role model for novelty teapots, as well as enjoying her cuppa with a cream cake or sticky bun.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Yes I have a teapot gathering dust – must dig it out and stop just dumping a teabag in a cup.

    • I used to have one of the old fashioned brown teapots. Don’t know what happened to it, but we share a tea bag as neither of us like our tea too strong, but then it is YORKSHIRE tea!

  2. Sadje says:

    Cute picture.

  3. Dale says:

    It is sad that we don’t take the time to have a proper tea. I used to share pots and pots of the stuff with my late friend!

    • I’m a tea drinker as a rule, but lately have been having more cups of coffee during the day, but NEVER as my first cuppa! There is something though about brewed tea leaves in a china pot and drinking from a matching china cup and saucer. Posh I might mot be, but I appreciate the tradition!

      • Dale says:

        I love it, too!
        My father gave me a beautiful tea set that sat in his glass cabinet. It still resides in the box he used because I know not where to put it. Yet.

  4. Nothing like a properly brewed cup of tea.

    • Happy memories of bartering in a tea rooms with our excess produce from the cottage for a cream tea. China teapots and china cups and saucers, plus china plates for the cakes too.

  5. Dear Di,

    Such a lovely memory. Nicely done.



  6. You’ve tempted me to go out for a cream tea this afternoon!
