Having a nice cup of tea

I've just made this image into one of my user pics and I just love it, it makes me want to smile everytime :-) I bought it on a postcard, then found the original on the Corbis website. It was taken in 1939 in a factory in Cambridge. It reminds me of my Grandma, although in 1939 she was working in a munitions factory and was probably 15 years younger than this woman. From her looks though, she looks just like my Gran - same glasses, same smile :-)

It makes me think of people making the most of the small positive things in life. Even given the war and tea rationing, this woman is laughing her head off at something and enjoying a nice cup of tea. Hurrah for that!!
