What's your storm in a teacup: the petty argument you keep having that you wish you could stop?
Draw it in your tea-leaves, then wash the stress away with a nice cuppa...

You don't have to have a cup of tea if you don't want one, but being British, of course I never turn down a cuppa. It always calms me in a crisis. A rare (best of all, maybe even still hot) cup of tea marks out my precious me-time. A flask in the play-park is an excuse to stop and chat with friends. And turning the kettle on is about the only moment when I get up from my crazy working day and pause to think while I bustle round the kitchen.
All you need for this task however, is a cup and a used teabag (or some freshly brewed tea-leaves if you're classier than I am).
Think about your latest argument with a loved one. That one you have over and over again... and really wish you didn't.
What picture could you make in your tea-leaves to illustrate it?
It's quite fun getting your fingers in the tea and squidging it about to try and make a shape - and quite difficult. I had to poke mine about with the end of a kid's toothbrush... (I did try this with coffee grounds too but it wasn't half as good as the tea-leaves).
Create your tea-leaf 'reading', take a photo and give your argument a title.
If you want to tell us a bit about your row to get it out of your system, we'd love to hear about it. What do you argue about, and what does it all mean deep down...
(After a few cups, I discovered what it was that I was really arguing with my husband about, over and over again. It wasn't all the things I put in my tea-cup. It was how I felt about me...)
Here's to shared cuppas and brighter futures.
