This morning when I opened a new packet of tea, just for a moment I felt that familiar anticipation from childhood when Mum would open a new packet to reveal a card featuring a picture of a bird (and when I was very young, animals). The cards had to be equally shared with my brother, of course, and there were often a few arguments which resulted in threats from Mum that she would keep them in future and Ian and I wouldn’t get any more 😦 That brought us into line!
Alas, the cards were discontinued a few years ago. I miss them and the beautiful pictures but still have my childhood collection, although it’s not complete.
I still enjoyed my cuppa though 🙂
