So, Blue Eggs and Tea eh? What’s that all about?
Well, let me tell you! We’re (me and the birds) about the small, quiet moments in life. The time alone with your thoughts and the fresh air. We’re about friendship, love, looking at the sunset from the highest branch on the tree. We’re about good times, but acknowledging there are bad. We’re about feeling rubbish, but knowing there’s an end to it. We’re about feeling lonely sometimes, but knowing someone is out there to step-up and be a friend. We’re about celebrating what’s inside, celebrating the joy outside, celebrating the power of togetherness. We’re about gazing at each other with love and respect, and doing that regardless of how silly it may feel. We’re about timeless, good old fashioned values of belief, strength and kindness.
We’re not about being on trend, if that means fleeting moments to be lost forever unrecognised. We’re not about neutral tones (however nice they are as a wall colour) or ‘nothing in between’. We’re not about hollow sentiment, wallowing in the shadows or saying ‘life sucks. End of’. We’re not about ignoring the little moments of joy that you can find if you choose to look. We’re not about bullying, pressuring, making people feel bad for what they don’t have.
So you might like us if you think pineapple corer’s are ace, if you like your pudding fruity, if you like colour over drab shades, if you like your vodka with lime, if you read Dr Suess as a child (if you still read it now), if you find yourself liking certain letters of the alphabet for no reason, if you like cheese despite the calories and camping despite the cold showers. If you secretly like a spot of poetry, a spot of bother, a spot of pink wine, if you have a secret desire to be carefree, if you’re crazy busy and sometimes feel the need to sit with your head in your hands for just a minute in peace, if sometimes you feel 14, if sometimes you feel 114 and in need of a little lift but don’t like TicTacs, if you don’t take life too seriously and sometimes don’t mind if your hair is a birds nest, if you aren’t afraid to be different, if you believe it really is what’s inside a person that counts, if you’re a plain bird with a blue egg….
