T Stands for.........

Tea on Tuesday

First of all, talk about being suplanted!! I was just saying to Denise at lunch time that I had a blog post to write and hopefully would get chance to start (this), it, whilst Wee Man was having his lunch. However, having eaten it far quicker than it took me to make it, he came through and said he wanted to do an urgent blog post and would I help him. 
Obviously I couldn't say no, so if you would like to see what was so urgent to tell you, please go here.

   Now, back to the reason for my own post; this week I am sharing my Chinese meal with my friends from Tea on Tuesday over on Elizabeth's blog, Altered Book Lover.
We try to meet every Tuesday with a drink related post, although the drink doesn't have to be tea and the photo doesn't have to have been taken on a Tuesday. 
See how flexible it is? Why not join us this week?

My photo was taken on Saturday past and if you didn't know, that was St. Valentines Day. My lovely hubby and I don't 'celebrate' Valentines Day per se, but we do like to do something a little different and this year it was having a takeaway meal from our favourite Chinese restaurant. Other years it has been finding a special gift for under a fiver, setting up breakfast in bed in such a way that we can both enjoy the treat and one year I put heart chocolates in his lunch box for him to find at work. 
Anyhoo, here is my meal. I had Kung Pao Chicken. It was very good indeed.


And my beverage of choice was a drop of something bubbly. 
Light beer and lemonade. Otherwise known as a shandy, hehe.

Craft wise over the past week I did some more work in my Anti Journal  
and will be sharing more photos tomorrow/Wednesday. 
I also took part in a one staple collage swap which I will share pictures of, once my partner has received it and I, hers. 

Well until next time, thanks for stopping by to say 'Hi'; please leave me a word or two, they brighten my day.

Take care, stay safe and be well ((hugs)) Mo :o) x

  1. Meal looks and sounds yummy as does your shandy (i prefer a lager shandy), which i haven't had in about 12 years lol!

    Looking forward to your posts, meanwhile off to see what Wee Man has blogged.

    1. It's a rare thing for me 'to drink' Mo, but I just fancied one, and it went down a treat, lol.
      Happy T Day :o))

  2. wow- I love all those vibrant, colorful squares in your journal! I used to sometimes get a similar drink in France where they call it a panache. Happy T day!

  3. That Chinese meal looks good. Now you've made me hungry and it's nearly bedtime. Never heard of a Shandy, but I'm not one to drink alcohol. I'm no prude, just don't like the taste or the after effects.

    Ah, those one staple collages are fun, aren't they? I haven't made one in awhile, but I sure like the concept.

    Thanks for sharing your meal and drink with us for T this Tuesday, and your continued work in your journal, too.

  6. I enjoy a good shandy but then I can't sleep from the excess sugar. I guess that means I have to drink earlier in the day right?? HA!
    Happy T day!

  7. We enjoy Chinese food and have two very good take away places near us.

    Although I have mixed lemonade with wine (don't read this Krisha, LOL), I have never mixed lemonade with beer. Hmmm just may try this next summer!

    Love your anti journal page but have never heard of a one staple collage.

  9. Sounds like you and your husband "celebrate" Valentine's day much like my sweetie and I do. He gives me flowers, I make him a romantic card, usually we have a special meal. No fuss, no expensive gifts.
    I look forward to seeing your anti journal post tomorrow and also find out what a one staple collage swap is :-)
    Till then - be good, stay fabulous! xox

  10. Hi Mo, the chinese take out looks lovely and a shandy was always my Mum's drink of choice on a hot sunny day. Love the squares of colour on your journal pages, so pretty! Happy T Tuesday to you, Annette

    1. Thanks so much Annette. I'm afraid I don't like ice cold beer, or anything for that matter (unless it's ice cream, lol), so that means I can drink my shandy in any season, lol. Happy T Day :o)

  11. Lovely artwork!
    Your shandy sounds very refreshing...my mom used to enjoy the German version of that called a rattlermoss (spelling?)
    Mr Magpie and I try to make every day like Valentine's day...sounds like you and your Mr might be the same.
    I have been hungry for Chinese food.
    Happy T Day to you!

  12. Your meal looks delicious Mo, I am glad it is T-time here because seeing it has made me hungry! That's the trouble with dieting, I should never look at food. I do like the way you and your hubby celebrate Valentine's day - we do much the same, just a card and a bit of something (no chocolates though!). Hugs, Anne xx

  13. Well it looks like you had a wonderfully yummy Valentine's Day Twinks! Hubs and i have been together 25 years and the Holiday has definitely morphed for us over the years..... At first it was about being witty and fun... I once gave him a red fishing pole with the note... "I'm still hooked on you" ... lol One time i led him on a scavenger hunt where i was the prize...... fun times... No we just pretty much make a point to spend the day together ... maybe try something new or go somewhere neither one of us has been...... Happy Tday Twinks! Hugs~deb

    1. I think we have got Valentines 'right' Deb. I'm sure that maturity and length of the relationship lends itself to a deeper meaning for the day, imo, that is. Thanks for your visit, ((hugs))

  16. I think your Valentine's treat sound wonderful and so much better than the usual commercial stuff. We don't go overboard either... and considering we've been married (erm... doing a quick count) coming up for 36 years we must be doing something right. One year I remember I just made our toast into heart shapes and that seemed enough. I think just the fact that you do something... no matter how small, can mean a lot.
    Chinese looks delish... good job I've eaten already.
    Great journal artwork and loved Wee Man's blog post 😁

    1. Thank you Denise. I love the idea of heart shaped toast. I've not done that one yet, thanks for the tip. I agree it's important to make time 'for the little things'.
      The Chinese was very tasty, I hadn't had it before so googled it and decided to chance it. I will have it again.
      Glad you like the journal and Wee Man loves to see who has left him a comment. He gets excited when he sees names he remembers and he loved the music. So did I, haha. :o) xx
