Hi, I’m Mimi.
Welcome to Little Sips of Tea, where I blog about my life in a little Victorian cottage with my lovely husband, wonderful baby girl, and a great many books.
I love drinking tea, and tea pots, tea cosies, tea shops…one of my favourite treats is afternoon tea. I even had a tea themed wedding! I don’t just love reading, I find it essential; as I need air, food and water, I need books too. I worked in libraries for many years, and I sometimes think it runs through my centre like a stick of rock. When I left libraries I had a short glorious stint as a PA. I lived in a Mad Men dream world, hurrying to meetings in high heels and a swirl of emerald silk. All good things come to an end though, and my next job was incredibly stressful and unhappy, and I was first signed off sick and hen made redundant.
But it came at a wonderful time, as it has allowed me to be a full time wife and mother. I’m still rarely to be found without my red lipstick though!
My love of violet creams and long hot baths continues to flourish, although I have less time to indulge these days! I’m still adjusting to life as a mum, but loving it, and am finally finding time to revisit some of my other loves such as knitting, crochet and baking.
Won’t you join me as the next chapters unfold?
Love, Mimi xxx
