Five things about me in mugs and cups

This picture is inspired by the December Reflections prompt for today – ‘5 things about me’.  I suppose this is ‘five mugs about me’. I was grabbing a mug for my tea and wondering whether to grab my usual mug or go for the big tea mug. Big tea it was, then I saw my thrifted Pyrex mug which I like when I just want a small mug of tea and the slightly see through Pyrex reminds me of my Grandma who had mugs like this one. I began to wonder, does everyone have the mugs and cups they like for specific drinks and quantity of said drink?  Or am I just a little bit odd?  What do my mug choices tell you about  me? Anything?  What do your mug choices say about you? My coffee cup is just for coffee and I use it every day but I don’t even like it very much. It is a good size and keeps the coffee warm longer, although I am not mad about the crazy eyes! …

I am working on my ‘word’ for 2015, it seems to be the thing for next year, a word to live by.  No pressure then.  I had a word for 2014 but I can’t remember what it was.  See how good I am at this!!!  The December Reflections prompt for New Year’s Eve is ‘My word for 2015 is…’, so I had better get a wiggle on. Happy Monday x
