When family comes for dinner, it's the perfect opportunity to have a tea party first in the afternoon. And, that's just what we did.
My daughter, granddaughter, grandson (yup, he wanted to join us) and myself looked through the glass of the china cabinet to choose our teacups.
Sam chose a Christmas teacup and after taking a sip was so polite in saying it was good but was happy to have chocolate milk instead. Like most guys, trying to manoeuvre with the small handle on his cup was difficult but it was fun to use the silver sugar tongs to put a lump in and pour the milk. No jam or butter for his scone, he likes it plain.
It's fun to have tea with Grandma. We have to be careful with the antique tea things we use but we're always careful and better to use them than they sit in the china cabinet collecting dust.
Thanks for joining me for tea and until next week remember that 'preparing and enjoying tea is a ceremony of loveliness'.
