Shall I put on the kettle? Would you like a cuppa?
Can there be any more welcoming and comforting words?
An invitation to company, to companionship.
An invitation to stop, to have a chat.
An invitation to sort out the world.
Sitting around the kitchen table, nursing cups of tea.
A story shared, a listening ear.
Laughter, tears, silence shared.
Shall I put on the kettle?
Yes please, let’s have a cuppa!
