24 Festive Tasks: Door 3 - Melbourne Cup Day: Task 3

Task: Aussies shorten everything, so Melbourne Cup day is just called “Cup Day” – post a picture of your favorite cup or mug for your daily fix of coffee, tea or chocolate.

 

My Cheshire Cat heat changing mug has quickly established it as a firm favorite since I bought it a while ago ... so here it is in the company of the most recent additions to my mug collection, the two "big cat" entries of Whittard of Chelsea's "Wildlife" series:
