But don't worry, I am sure you will hear plenty more on that.

For my birthday this year, I have one very simple and small wish.
and apart from this one simple and very small wish,
I really don't want anything else.

You see, in the last month - we have moved into our very first husband and wife home together! We have been so incredibly lucky that the entire house is fully furnished - but in the last two months we have slowly been kitting ourselves out with our own house essentials.

Purchasing of these house "essentials" has proved rather interesting:

Warr: We need a good roasting tray.
Ché: What do you mean?
Warr: Like to put meat on, like to cut Christmas Carverys on.
Ché: Like a Christmas Carvery Roasting Tray?
Warr: Exactly.
Ché: But, we like, don't have our own knives and forks. And we like.... never cook Christmas Carvery Roasts.
Warr: Yeah, but... all married people have Christmas Carvery Roasting Trays.
Ché: .... yeah. ok.

In fact, we have had quite a number of these sorts of conversations in the last few months.
So to sum up - we have purchased quite a few "essentials" in the last month:
"Essentials" being things such as - roasting carvery trays; massive pots; wine carafes; ice trays.
"Non-essentials" clearly being things such as knives and forks and mugs.

Thankfully, we have been able to use the crockery and cutlery that is in our current house. Which is lucky since without it, we would be using our hands and eating out of pots. Although unfortunately the current mugs we have are on the small side and there have been times when i have seriously considered making a cup of tea in one of our aforementioned pots -

So, for my birthday this year, (Dear Warren), I would like a mug.

Just a mug.
Just the one.


I have some mug specifications that must be adhered to -

I don't want no pip-squeak sized mug.

What is that? One sip and what? 
You are finished?


Those mugs are for ants.

Freaking ant sized mug.
No thanks.

Now, before you think about making "a big funny" 
let me be clear -

You know the ones I'm talking about.

Don't want one of those either.

Too big. Too much.
Coffee gets cold.

Yep, it's all about the size.

and perhaps one with flamingos on it.

Got it?

Our Birthday presents can be friends:

I have always wanted a cow milk jug like the one on the left and then the awesome husband-to-be found this one for me!

Johlet said...

haha so cool! Show us your mug when you get it hey! :) xxx

Tessa Tuttle said...

I use the same mug every time - rinse & reuse for coffee, tea, warm milk - alles! It's the perfect size & the perfect lip thickness (f you get what I mean?)
Happy Birthday month - ain't nobody just celebrate one day anymore!

GeeGee said...

I started celebrating my birthday month 2 days ago as well :D Glad it aint just me...'cept I've 21 days still to go, and we have all the mugs in the world (I've asked for a bike ride day). Please also make sure it's a medium thickness mug - too thick and it's awkward for lips, too thin and the drink cools too quickly.

BEST mug I've had came with it's own ceramic cover to keep the heat in. But it was also very slim and was reduced to Being A Guest Mug as it didnt hold enough tea. Good luck and happy fellow july month birthdayer!

I totally agree that tiny mugs are a waste of time. Personalised mugs (decent size ones LOL).

Rhianne said...

Haha just you wait - in 5/10 years time you'll have more mugs than you ever imagined, in all sorts of sizes. I remember buying our first mugs but somehow now we have cupboards(!) full of them for every occasion (and a lot of the big hangover ones too lol, shame)

Also, you need christmas mugs, I insist - to go with your roasting pan of course. Christmas is just better drinking tea from a christmas mug :)

Che Kershaw said...

hahaha as soon as my birthday is over I'm going to start asking for Christmas mugs. to go with our roasting pan. Obviously.

Che Kershaw said...

ah cool mug site! you can totes get your mug shot on a mug. lol hilar!

Che Kershaw said...

hahaha My bday is the 20th so I still have plenty of days left to pre-celebrate! haha and find the perfect mug :) agree on the thickness thing. it's like an art, this mug finding thing. An. ART.

Che Kershaw said...

oh I TOTALLY know what you mean about the lip thickness!! haha and when i find the perfect mug am definitely going to be washing/re-using/rinsing. haha it's the only way :)

Che Kershaw said...

foh shiszle i will!

Che Kershaw said...

no ways - that is so cute! is there also a piggy that's a bacon tray?

FutureMrsOrpen said...

There is - its a microwave tray that makes your bacon crispy apparently :)

Caley said...

When did mugs get so complicated? And why do they make mugs that we absolutely cannot drink out of? Ridic!

Che Kershaw said...

hahaha i know right!
