10 on the 10th Boiled Egg for Breakfast

Here is my 10 on the 10th (well it was only 8 so I've added my cup of coffee to make up the number lol :D)
When I was a wee lass back in the dark ages, when ever I had a boiled egg there was a ritual to be performed. I don't know who started it, probably one of my grandparents.





Whatever the reason for the ritual it was such great fun smashing the shell till it was unusable, and even now 'tis still something to be done. I think I am now in my second childhood.
Now to make it up to 10 this is what accompanied my boiled egg this morning

A cup of real coffee in my nice glass coffee mug I love the shape of this one even though the handle is in such an awkward place.

If you want to see more 10s on the 10th head over to Shimelle's blog

I used to do that with my eggshell but I didn't sing the ditty - just thought I was being a rebel :0)
