I’ve been accused of oversharing, but then I always remember my friend who shared a photo of her naughty bits on twitter to make a point. Why do I mention that? Well, I suppose I do say things online that others wouldn’t. And when I do so, it sometimes makes the people I love cringe.… Continue reading Oversharing about overspending & belt tightening & why Andrea’s question has me writing this to begin with
shameless self promotion
Was about to say that I hadn’t talked about turtles in a while, but I went back and looked at my earlier posts on this blog and there’s nothing turtle-related. Not a damned thing. Which is a bit strange, because I’m really into turtles. And? There’s a beautiful human female riding atop the turtle. Not… Continue reading shameless self promotion
A year? It’s been a whole year?
Has it been an entire year? Quite a lot has happened this year since I started this blog. I’d taken a few stabs at blogging (unsuccessfully) and still have a teablog that gets a bit of attention. I should do more over there, but my friends who’re tea fanatics seem to be patiently awaiting my… Continue reading A year? It’s been a whole year?
Elaine’s Cuppa Cake
Our favourite Tottenham Riviera blogger elaine4queen has been threatening to move to Scotland, so I happened upon the perfect place for her. Her own café. Where we can all go and be sweary and inappropriate. As we are wont to do. This isn’t easy – all this blogging. To be honest, I’ve never been a… Continue reading Elaine’s Cuppa Cake
starting and ending in the front room on the Tottenham Riviera
The trip to London is like a huge chunk of molten ore from which I’ll be mining blogposts for a long time to come. Were I to show you my itinerary, you’d be astounded at how much I packed into such a short trip. Big ups to @elaine4queen for meditation-related help and conversations of the… Continue reading starting and ending in the front room on the Tottenham Riviera
quirky cafés and tea shops in London?
Need your help. Please. Pretty please. Tried this on my Teablog, and only got one tip. I’m in London this weekend, which means there’ll be tea drinking and idling in an entirely new country. Exciting, right? But as much as I know of the city, there are always places one’s never heard of. I’m staying… Continue reading quirky cafés and tea shops in London?
wait and drink tea
I have a friend who definitely believes in the Pareto principle and quotes it at every opportunity. The basic idea is that about 80% of the result comes from 20% of the work (and the converse: you do 80% of the work and get only 20% of the benefit). Business people talk about this concept often.… Continue reading wait and drink tea
self-care of a political dissident
This is the first time I’ve pulled something from my teablog (lahikmajoe drinks tea) over here, but I think you’ll appreciate it. Here’s what Václav Havel had to say about drinking tea in prison: ‘When I was outside, I didn’t understand the cult of tea that exists in prison, but I wasn’t here long before grasping… Continue reading self-care of a political dissident
