This week I’m joining in with The Prompt, a lovely linky I found over at http://www.mumturnedmom.com
This week the prompt is
my favourite smell…
There are quite a few smells I love, and I think they are all what most people would consider slightly odd.I love the smell of coffee, though I cant stand the taste, I love the smell of a shoe repair shop, trust me they smell great, paint, sharpie pens, I also love the smell of petrol, and probably the strangest one is the smell of tarmac, when a new road is being laid. I could stand by a new road and inhale for hours.
The smell I love the most though, the one that really means something to me is the smell of Twinings earl grey.
Whenever I smell it I’m taken back to my Nan’s kitchen in Norway, where we spent so much time growing up, (not just in the kitchen) I can picture my nan making us a fresh brew, while also whipping up a cake or some fresh pancakes, there was so much cake at my Nan’s house, I can picture my Grandad sitting at the little table by the window with his hearing aid turned right up so he could hear the radio. They were happy times, good family times, whenever I make a cup of earl grey I just stop for a moment, inhale and let myself go back to my Nan’s kitchen.
