My mother has been waking up every day since I can remember and having a pot of tea (with a teacup-never a mug) and bananas on toast. Everyone in our family knows never to take the last banana, but to save it for my mom. Yesterday she had her birthday in Guatemala. I doubt she was able to carry on this tradition. My poor mom has probably been bombarded with spicy foods for the last 10 days-too much for an Irish mom to take!:) So, here's to you mom! (I do so love my Brambly Hedge tea set) My slide show contains pictures of the Northern Ireland countryside.
