Celebrating tea before January ends!

This is a link to a fellow blogger who posts as Gracious Hospitality and has a fun draw on for January as a Tea Month (first I knew of it!) She asks that we post links to her post on our blogs. So here goes - the post link is below. I hope you visit her her page and share the lovely photos she has posted of tea gardens in Sri Lanks and Indonesia. I already wrote about tea gardens in Sri Lanka in my post on a nice cup of tea, so it is good to see these lovely scenes.

You will see the nice photo above from her post, showing what she has to give away in the draw which takes place tomorrow - short notice I know, but I have only just sorted linking things to my posts. I'm sure she'll understand! She posts a lot of recipes and also about tea, so we have something in common!

Every day I am learning something new about blogging - yesterday I discovered links and how to incorporate them, it took some time and I was trying to find out myself before capitulating and asking my graphic designer son to show me! He already showed me how to add all the sidebar gadgets and Lynda has also been very helpful when she gave me my first blog award (!) and told me how to get it on my page. This is baby steps and I have a long way to go to catch up with many of the more skilled bloggers out there.

Keep visiting my blog and remember - I love to read all the comments - and welcome any new followers!

I never knew that January was tea month - how lovely :) I adore tea and usually drink about around 8 to 10 cups a day, but since falling pregnant I just can't bear it ! The same thing happened for my previous pregnancies, so I'm not too worried as I know my love for tea will eventually return, as it did before ! I've found the blogging community to be so helpful & it's fun learning new things & seeing what others are doing on their blogs, isn't it ? Have a great February, I hope that it's warmer than January was for you !

Hi Catherine,your links work wonderfully! The first time I got an award Lynda had to explain to me how to go about putting it up too.We learn something new nearly every day and it is great to meet so many people from all over the world.
best wishes
