Is it just me or does this scene cry out 'Britishness'?

There we were, Mr Pippa and me (you do know that his name isn't actually Mr Pippa, right? My first name is Pippa, which is why I refer to him on here as Mr Pippa. Just needed to get that straightened out.) eating our bacon sarnies and drinking tea (a bacon sandwich just isn't complete without a cup of tea, y'know) when...

"WAIT! Put your mug back down... Move your arm out of the way a sec... Hold it..."

I didn't keep him waiting long, don't worry. I really loved the look of it all - the polka dots, the mugs, the bread, the colours. It was a pleasing scene and I'm glad I halted the bacon-eating for a photo.

I have yet to dip my toe into the terrifying unknown that is Photoshop. I have it. I just need someone to show me how to use it.

In other news, I have no tonsils! I had surgery a week ago and today I'm feeling alright, really. 5 and a half days of no speaking (Sign Language to the rescue again!) and a lot of pain (hence no crafting lately), but now, I'm feeling more normal (for someone who has M.E, that is). Throat still hurts a bit, but I'm slowly getting back to the to-do lists. I had planned to make and send Easter cards this year, but I woke up on Wednesday realising that it's Easter this weekend. Yeah, so that never happened. Nor did any Easter crafts whatsoever. But my favourite decorated eggs are still these ones:

Have a great weekend, folks.
