Afternoon tea for two!

I got a call from a good friend saying she was coming over to my side of town for a meeting and would I be home for a cuppa? Absolutely!

She said she would provide some nibbles and a glass of wine if I would set the table and make a cup of tea.

Since I had a bit of time on my hands - I decided that we would sit outside and I set the table.


This is the nicest view of the yard. The other way had washing that wasn't dry, a chook pen full of squawking chickens and a house that needed cleaning...


Its always fun to get out my Grandmothers china. When my Mom gave it to me she said to use it and have fun with it rather than store it and revere it. And this was definitely a fun occasion!

It was a lovely afternoon! We sat and nibbled and chatted for a wonderful couple of hours before her afternoon meeting - we must do that again soon, Anita!

I loved the comments about the OTHER side of the garden (and house!) Life's a bit like that, isn't it? It's all where you choose to focus...

Apparently you do take a break. ;-)

It sounds like a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. :-)

Yes - Im managing to wrangle a few hours for myself here and there! I have rearranged a few working days to give me time to do things like this - and it makes all the difference, especially when you can turn your back on the washing and housework for a couple of hours!!! - K xx
