One of Felix’s favourite activities is to ‘make’ us a cup of tea – he puts the teabag in the cup and tells us when to add the milk. So it’s not surprising that this tea set from my Mum was one of his favourite presents.
It didn’t actually come with a teapot so Mum improvised with a little one she found in the cupboard. The lid kept falling off and we were worried it would break so we hid it away and told Felix it was sleeping. Not to be dissuaded, he spent most of the day looking around hopefully, saying ‘lid sleeping?’ Yesterday we relented and gave it back, and today he was playing happily with it when he decided that probably the lid would be tired by now so he ran off to put it to bed.
