Saturday afternoon tea

We had a delightful and thoroughly civilised afternoon with friends.  It’s been such a long time since we have had such a lovely time.  Life has been a little fraught and busy since the new year and at times it can be so easy to forget what normality feels like.

The plan was originally for me to make a cake for our afternoon tea, but some how I ran out of time.  (It seems that recently I have been running out of time a lot more frequently).

So this morning was all about hunting for something  delicious and tempting for our guests.

After much deliberation we settled for purchasing a Lemon and Blueberry Cake, a couple of Almond slices and a number of pieces of Rocky Road from the Butter and Cream Cakes stall in North Street Market.

  1. Oh, this looks fantastic, Chrissy, so delicious! I can so relate to what you are saying! I’m also running out of time and this year has started out very busy, only to get even more busy. I also can’t remember when we had a nice afternoon with some friends over tea or coffee. Have a good time and enjoy your Sunday!
