Just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I am enjoying your book. I am reading it at two hour intervals at work, accompanied by you only know too well what!
I have also had an idea that may go well on your website and wondered what you might think of it. Having recently enjoyed the film Vera Drake (thought it is very harrowing, so enjoy might not be the best word), and despite its serious intent, it is so glorious in its Britishness and period feel. Tea features heavily in Vera Drake and it got me thinking about other great tea moments in films. It struck me how interesting and amusing it might be for people to suggest a 'Top Ten Tea Films.' Like the interrupted farewell over tea in Brief Encounter (with sugar served in the spoon), or Tom Courtenay's wonderful rendering of 'I like a nice cup of tea in the morning...' in The Dresser. Not to mention Wallace and Gromit and their huge brown teapots! What do you think?

|Nicey replies: Hello Nick,
Oh yes, that's a good plan. I think my favourite has to be Donald Pleasence in the Great Escape offering James Garner (I think) a cup of tea and complaining that he had been reusing the same tea leafs about ten times now.
