Afternoon tea

Although Lovely Husband and I have never made a huge fuss about Valentine's Day, it does feel really nice to have something to celebrate at this miserable time of year. Am I the only one who feels this winter is n-e-v-e-r-e-n-d-i-n-g? This year we go out for the calorific splurge that constitutes afternoon tea. The fact that we are accompanied by Beautiful Girl and the ceaseless chatter that she keeps up for her every waking moment should make it less romantic. But it really doesn't.

Edited to add: It is an exaggeration to say that Beautiful Girl talks endlessly without stopping. She is actually utterly silent for her daily viewing of "Mary Poppins".


  1. Hi Jo,
    Thanks for your very kind comments on my blog. That tea looks scrumptious! You can't beat a proper afternoon tea.

  2. A proper English tea - how positively divine.

    Wouldn't it be funny if they made a film called 'The Never Ending Winter' as opposed to 'The Never Ending Story?''

    Thanks for popping over and saying 'Hi'

    take care,
