I am just about to go and put the kettle on, it is one of those activities that I find settling and that's an expression I suppose of 'steady, unflustered, but perhaps a bit dull' Englishness! Yesterday someone commented that I should have been called Polly!*
And also yesterday morning, as I was chatting to people leaving church I said to a lady who was feeling a bit life-battered, "let's go and get a nice cup of tea!" to which the next in line commented, "the answer to everything eh?". "Yes" says me, "nice cup of tea and prayer." Well it works for me! Cuppa tea anyone?

*From the nursery rhyme Polly put the kettle on...!
