Today Simon and I hosted a High Tea which doubled as our house warming since we hadn’t had one yet. Everyone was asked to bring plate of something to share so we ended up with more than enough food, which I am sure my work mates won’t mind as I am planning on bringing them in the left over's tomorrow. That also means that there will be a few new posts popping up here shortly as I share the recipes of the treats we had (if I can get used to the stinky keyboard I am using since my laptop is deciding to die – not cool computer!). We indulged in an afternoon of food, drink, conversation and while our stomachs settled we even played a few board games (we ♥ Carcassone).
The idea of the high tea came to me after an offer from Bakers Delight to try out some of their scones. We were given their apple strudel and the date varieties to enjoy – you can check them out in the ‘virtual bakery’ section of their website. Simon loved them. He is pretty pleased that we had so much food as it means there are still some scones left, which he is looking forward to having for his breakfast tomorrow :)
P.S. That is NOT my baby I am holding in the collage above – it is Matthew, Andie’s (who guest posted here about her Russian fudge recently) son. Check out her blog, Red Strawberries. And, the little man in the blue and grey striped jumper is Courtenay’s gorgeous baby Max – she’s been writing a separate blog about him so check that out too!
