a tea party with kate.... or, memories of visits to nan's in the 60s & 70s



i walked back in time yesterday when i shared the afternoon with kate and friends - nan would have been proud - the tea pot never went cold at nan's, and neither did it at kate's... and the home baked goodies never stopped coming either...

lemon slice, macaroons, cheesy choux pastries, butterfly cakes, chocolate cake, cucumber sandwiches, ricotta-prune-chocolate cakes, honey cakes, banana cake... and tea, conversation, tea, conversation, and more tea... it was an extremely pleasant gathering...

just thought i'd share this slideshow with you...











and thought i'd share Sailor Lil's latest 'brag shot' ... both looking happy, contented, sated... a beautiful photograph...

i know... the 'spread' was amazing... a real step back in time... and jack is a beautiful old boy - 15 - and loves knee time... but i think hugo might have an objection or two with another cat in his library....
