I had all these really cool ideas when I read that this week’s photo challenge was the colour purple, mostly involving purple-belt jiu jitsu fighters. But, since there has been more tea and sympathy this week than jiu jitsu, I have a picture of a tea-cup. Tea-cups are purple. Twinings Traditional Tea has purple labels. The flowers in Earl Grey tea are purple. And Cadbury chocolate wrappers are purple. I’d love to write all about the anti-oxidant values of tea and chocolate, but the fact is that sometimes you just need good friends with tea and chocolate.
