Behind the Scenes - Early Morning

Behind the Scenes - Early Morning

It starts well. 

I'm up before everyone else. The house is quiet. Everyone still sleeping. 

I creep past my three-year-old in his bed and carefully turn the door handle. It clunks as I release it too quickly. My teeth grit. I look around. He doesn't stir. Phew.

Time is precious. There are priorities.

The kettle is switched on. 

My favourite teacup is still drying under a pile of clean dishes. I weigh up my desire for a pretty teacup with my desire not to wake anyone with the noise of moving dishes. I will use a mug this morning.

My Lady Betty tin is empty right now. The cold morning and ticking clock make the Tielka warehouse next door slightly too far away to get more. I'll have Earl Royale instead. It's a pretty good substitute. Like choosing a butter croissant when the almond croissants are out of stock.

I insert my earbuds, turn my Spotify playlist on, and take my mug to the couch. It's still a little too cold to spend this precious time on our back deck.

A glance at the clock reveals I have 35 minutes until the house stirs. It doesn't feel long enough. I will make the most of every minute.

My music, my tea, my thoughts, my prayers, fill the next half hour or so. 

My day is nothing without this.

It sets the scene for the rest of the day. Family, Tielka, life, faith. They are all recharged in these moments.

Accompanied by a beautiful cup of tea, it all comes together. Whatever happens next, the day can start with cohesion and beauty.

This is why Tielka exists.

Indulge in life.

2022: Two Tips to Starting a New Season Well

by Rebecca Domorev December 31, 2021 2 min read

Do you feel yourself breathing a sigh of relief as you close the chapter on 2021? 

Have you already mentally bundled up 2020 with 2021 as you look forward with cautious anticipation for 2022? 

Interestingly, the 31st of December in 2020 and 2021 are not the only years I have noticed an influx of "good riddance" posts on social media about the preceding 12 months. Remember in 2019 looking forward to 2020 with "2020 vision"?
