What better way to celebrate the creator of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-glass and What Alice Found There, than to toast his memory with a nice cup of tea?
And how better to enjoy that tea than out of one of the best Christmas presents of last year - thank you, Sheila and Roger! - a mug with a vanishing Cheshire Cat!
Now you see it...
Now you don't!
Apart, of course, from that lingering grin!
Time for a top-up...?
"Take some more tea," the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
"I've had nothing yet," Alice replied in an offended tone, "so I can't take more."
"You mean you can't take less," said the Hatter: "it's very easy to take more than nothing."
"Nobody asked your opinion," said Alice.
"I want a clean cup," interrupted the Hatter: "let's all move one place on."
(Charles Lutwidge Dodgson)
