It's an extra large cup for my tea! The shape keeps my tea warmer for longer and the big handle and ear make it easy to pick up - perfect. For anyone who's not familiar with this particular monkey, he's from a certain brand of tea. I have other items :
Theses two sit in the corner of my desk when I'm writing. I never talk to them - that would be silly.
I also have a monkey calendar to brighten my day.
You always need a good spoon for your tea - these are perfect.
And this image is stuck on my wall in the room where I do my writing. It makes me smile every time I see it. I may have given away the brand of tea :)
