My sister in law came to visit in March. When trying to come up with something that we would be interesting to do with her I thought going to the Doctor Who shop. She is Doctor Who fan like I am. I wasn’t sure if she had ever visited the store in her trips to London. She had not so we planned to go. M was going to take the girls to a park nearby while we browsed the shop. When it came time for us to get ready to leave the girls were a bit crazy. Since M had spent time with our sister and law while the girls were in school she suggested that I take her on my own since I was more of a fan.
It was well worth the trip. We geeked out in the shop for a really long time. I bought the girls the latest Sonic screwdriver (13th Doctor) to go with their collection. I also got a Tardis tea set for one.
We also paid the pound to each to go into the museum they have in the back. That may be its own post since it was super awesome. One of the owner showed us around and he was supercool about explaining everything.
It was a fantastic experience even though I spent more money than I had anticipated. On the plus side now I have a tea set to help me get into the tea drinking habit. Since I got the tea set I have been making a mini pot of tea when working from home. I am even having it on the weekend. I treat myself to one or two tea biscuits. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the new ritual.
The girls are even getting into the ritual sometimes on the weekend. They saw me doing it one day. I couldn’t say no to them after they saw the tea biscuits. They also love tea. Since team to them is really a tiny amount of tea and the rest of the drink being milk in the cup. Adding a biscuit to the ritual sold them too.
