I know I've said it before but I can't get over the weather!
We've pretty much eaten dinner (and even breakfast) outside for 3 weeks running...what an absolute treat.
Anyway, the weekend saw another cream tea opportunity, inspired by Granny finally moving in to what is now known as 'The Garden Cottage'!
Granny has been unpacking for days now - the crystal bowls seem endless! (how many crystal bowls does one family need???) and Nelly and I have delighted in hearing about which tea set belonged to which set of Grandparents, and more intersetingly, which visitor would warrent getting it out (seemingly only the vicar or relatives from afar!)
I have, of course, inherrited another little bundle of treasures, which brings me back to the cream tea - everything tastes better on china! Our menu was cucumber sandwiches (following their surprise success on royal wedding day), and new favourite...strawberry cream tea cake. Basically a cream tea on a scone type sponge (recipe here).
All washed down with lashings of ginger beer (with lime) then a good old cup of tea.
Life doesn't get any better than that.
