I sent this photo to my family the other day because they couldn’t believe this mug was still going strong!
I was given this mug on my 21st birthday by my family. I am a Leo, love black and gold and I adore lions. At that stage it was very unusual for people born on 23rd July to be under the Leo star sign. I was usually a Cancer, but I always felt like a Leo – so I loved this mug and I know how hard it must have been to find something like this in a small town in Africa.
I have taken this mug with me every time I have lived in another country. It has travelled all over the world with me, and is still going strong. I have never been careful with it so I am amazed it has not been broken, chipped or lost yet. There is colour loss but apart from that, it makes any tea and coffee taste fantastic.
