Russians too (who might use jam instead of sugar).

Pouring tea into a saucer and drinking it.

Did I imagine this, or did people actually do this,until the 80s. And why?


My grandmother used to pour tea into the saucer...  but that was for the dog.

My maternal grandfather also drank his tea from a saucer.  I always thought it v. odd indeed, but that side of the family are all a bit ... strange. :)

Well, that's a little embarrassing.  We're eating dinner in front of Richard Osman's House of Games when my phone rings. It's the landlord of my local a few doors away.
"Where are you?"  He asks.
Initially I assume that this is in reference to the fact that I no longer drink during the week and maybe Friday counts as the weekend.
I explain that I'm at home eating my dinner.
"Well, Megan has has been in the pub for the last half hour"

Megan = Border Terrier.

Clearly Megan isn't planning to stop drinking in the week just because you have.

  • What’s this do?
  • I’ve always wondered where this was
I’m being neighbourly1 in that I’m not using my spray paint gun to paint the gable wall and thus not spraying neighbours cars with overspray and blown droplets. The wall is pebble dash and it’s a right pain in the proverbial to paint with a brush and it’s also making my arms a shoulders sore. And it’s taking two or three times longer to actually get any where. I do sometimes wish I was less empathetic!

1. That, and masking windows et al, as well as the faff of cleaning down the spray machine.
