Tea Time

Decades ago, before grandchildren, before The Bunny Bungalow, Tall Husband and I were at a chic mall. Suddenly there it was in a window of an unlikely shop, spread out for a picnic tea. Tall Husband saw me put my hand over my heart and ran into the shop to enquire. Yes, it was a set and the only one they had and it cost $500.00 USD. We walked away because we are so rational.
Some time later, on my birthday, when I arrived home from work, I found Tall Husband sitting on the floor of the living room. Spread before him was the tea set, ready to serve tea and English biscuits. It seems that this surprise was from him, my son and daughter-in-law. Over the years, Tall Husband and I have had teas, as he read Peter Rabbit to me. Then, when the grandchildren arrived, a tradition of tea and story time evolved.

Tall Husband tells me, "If you could have seen your face when you had it pressed against that shop window, you would have bought it for you." Awwww, Tall Husband.

  1. I am a tea lover and I find this blog very cool. This is my first comment on this blog. I have read many blogs in your site and also read different comments. It inspired me to drop few words here. There are two food related things that are imperative to me when I am going with my kids. One is that they generally have some presentation to local traditions and food.
    The other is that they get some experience eating at cafés that do not have a kids menu. And where they cannot shading on the tablecloth. In other words, I like us to have no less than one sensibly extravagant dinner out. We achieved this with Tommy in Paris at Le Train Bleu. Eating in London I chose that our most solid option for a real and upscale feasting background was evening tea. Also, despite the fact that I explored some extraordinary areas where we could do as such; in my mind I never strayed excessively a long way from Fortnum and Mason; seemingly the most customary spot in London to have this most British of dinners.
    There are really three unique menus for tea. Under the well friendly and master direction of the staff, we requested three Fortnum's High Teas alongside a container of crisp lemonade for the young men. This was all that anyone could need sustenance for two grown-ups and two kids, even moderately huge eaters like us. Truth be told, we were requested. And were given seconds on scones and I figure our cakes may have additionally been recharged without our inquiring. I am very happy that I found you. This is a great opportunity for me to share my reviews here. Love this site a lot. Thank you so much for sharing! Keep up the good work like this.
