With only one day a week to dedicate to in-situ at the moment, time for tea is rare.
We’ve a school project to sort out – starting next week - as well as the R&D, “explore and exchange”, trip to Project Row Houses, Houston, Texas; where ten representatives from Brierfield and Nelson - including artists, youth workers, teachers, and residents - will spend a week, as guests of Project Row Houses, with artist and founder, Rick Lowe, and the Project Row Team.
That said: William and I did find time for tea.
We went to Ivy St picnic bench
Took out our tea making equipment: kettle, camping stove, tea pot, mugs, tea, milk, sugar cubes, and of course water and prepared for a brew
Temperamental – the camping stove refused to give us a flame
So to plan B
William’s camper van stove
Resulting in a perfect brew n cuppa for two
We sat, drinking tea, hoping that we would encounter Raj and Kaseem and be able to offer them a brew
But our time was too short
And our timing wrong
No one but us at the bench today
But many a passer by doffed their caps, said hello, and commented on the amazing sunshine for this time of year
We finished our brews
and went to Brierfield Library - In-situ’s new base camp
A meeting with in-support: our steering group…
