High Tea!!


Just back from Newcastle...A friend invited me to go down for a gathering at a place called Fenwood house for "High Tea" tee hee. Her husband quipped as we left the house "Now don't get too high on that tea will you.." Droll I know...we stayed overnight at a couple's place we know...and it was so lovely to be in their home because its clear how much love there is in their home -

So here are the piccies of the place where we had the High tea.






























And here we are...it wasn't all cakes and cream but lots of little savoury thingies and you couldn't hear yourself think which is what happens when a lot of women get together. the little cupcakes were the final serve...

and no we didn't get high at all...a bit sick and needing some antacids - I have to admit that a class of cold Chardonnay would have gone down well but alas none to be seen any where.

I enjoyed myself but wish I could be with people and not become exhausted...I was absolutely whacked when we got home form the two days...its been like this for a while. I have become so used to being mainly on my own that even with people I really love...I need time out pretty quickly.

Modern women, but such an old setting of afternoon tea. Pleased that someone still does it.

I love high tea.
Take a day off to rest and enjoy the sweet memories that come when friends get together.

Lovely. We used to do afternoon tea with the kids, would make tea in a pot and set up the table and have homemade scones with jam and cream. Haven't done that for ages.
I hear you re being exhausted from being with people, but I don't know what the answer is.

I know what you mean about exhausted. Last month I met bloggers on two separate occasions and loved it but the logistics of getting there did me in. Bus, train, taxi or walking and crowds of people, still if I did it more it probably wouldn't be as bad
