Abwarten und Tee trinken

This is one of the German sayings I like very much: wait and drink tea -what could be better? Coffee, maybe. Actually, it's a bit English, since tea is the panacea for everything in England.
Unforgettable: when our house in London burned down in 1979, we were standing outside watching, incredulous. Our neighbours were outside with tray full of mugs of tea (lots of sugar in there, dear!) before the fire brigade.
November - time for a cup of tea.

  1. Memorable scene indeed! A cuppa tea will put you right dear, we'll worry about the house later. I really like that :)

    By the way, if you're interested in German sayings you might like our Pukka German podcast.

    All the best,

  2. ....ja, macht sich manchmal wirklich besser, als vorschnell etwas zu tun, dass man lieber gelassen hätte.
