If this is what Middle Age brings, I think I might like it here…



I got home from work yesterday to find a box in the back garden, as soon as I saw the words Fortnum & Mason I did get a teensy bit excited. I tried not to let the excitement mean that I ripped the box to shreds trying to get in it, but it was a close thing, I’m telling you.

Inside was this wicker hamper.


The Tea basket it’s called….

I might just have THE  bestest sister that ever was for getting this delivered to me..

And so of course inside is lots of tea related goodies…


So now I have another dilemma. To sit and stare at the loveliness of it all, or to have a nice cup of tea in that cute mug with some cookies on the side…..

Maybe I’ll have some tomorrow, well it will be my Birthday….



  1. Love. The mug is beautiful!
    And, my goodness, I was thinking about your birthday tea at the Ritz just the other day!

  2. Looks great! Have a wonderful birthday!
