Oh the thrills of civilization

My husband and I visited his sister who lives about 20 miles west of London a few weekends back.
We went along to watch one of her boys play in a high school (private) rugby match. Afterwards the school supplied tea & coffee along with finger sandwiches and baked goods.
Here I am enjoying my treats on the lawn. I was quite happy.

When I asked if there would be snacks, my husband's sister looked at me and replied that there would be tea and that implied that there would be treats. How wonderful.

Somewhere along the way Americans dropped some of the best practices when we broke away from British rule!
