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!

You look so pretty there!!!

I have relatives in England (and Ireland, but they're more distant). I have been promised a "British tea on a chamomile lawn" if I ever went over to visit my cousin, Denise.

I can't imagine it, but it sounds wonderful!

Thanks Tia - sounds like that British tea would be enjoyable - hope you make it out there some time!
