Favorite Shots: Collectable Crockery

So there is this lady at school. Her name is Gran. We call her Gran because she is like the Grandma of the entire student body. Her sole function is to invite us over to bake cookies and chat to us. So I went over to her house and made cookies. It was restful and warm. Not surprising, considering that her house is called Green Pastures.

And now for Two Things, one of which is an interesting fact, and one of which is a cultural truth combined with a piece of advice:

1) All the houses in England have names, even in the small towns. It’s really dear.

2) When in England, do not refer to how “cute” someone’s “yard” is, even if they have the cutest yard you have ever seen in your life! It sounds pretty condescending, and I think the word “yard” is considered to be a dirty piece of ground or something like that. It is offensive.

And now moving on from that random sidenote. When we got around to making the cookies I was impressed by the fun crockery that kept popping up everywhere. Mixing bowls, soufflé pots, teacups; you name it, that kitchen had it. We had a good time, chatting, drinking tea and nibbling crumpets (see below for the real deal).

Here’s to my teacups everywhere: I love you. Please find me soon.
