High tea


My dear daughter treated me to High- tea with her at the Cordis Hotel to celebrate Mothers Day and her and my, May birthdays.We had such a fun day out together, and was so lovely of Victoria to organize this kind and thoughtful outing.

There was so much food, we ate delicious savouries and sandwiches to start with, next came fluffy scones with jam and cream and then the daintiest cakes and desserts that were almost too pretty to eat.

After trying to make our way through all the food, it was just too much for us, so they kindly gave us a box to take the food home.

It's really hard to believe that it was 30 years ago, on the 29th of May that our sweet little baby girl joined our family. We are so proud of all you have done in your life and want to wish you a very happy year ahead.

It is Queens birthday weekend here, so we have a Monday holiday which is always very welcome.
Have a wonderful weekend folks.



  1. What a lovely and delicious treat from Victoria - belated happy birthday to you both. It was good of them to give you a box to take the leftovers home.

  2. The tiers look loaded with delicious things to eat. I'm glad that you and your daughter had such a lovely outing together. Have a great week.

  3. Lovely post dear! Have a great week! xx

  4. Dearest Carolyn,
    Happy belated Birthday to the both of you!
    What a delightful High Tea for Mother & Daughter.
    Delicious food and a Feast for the Eye as well!
    Surprise that they do provide a kind of a 'doggy-bag to go' for the left over...
    Sending you hugs,

  5. What a nice get-together you had with your daughter, Carolyn. I always love the scones with jam and cream, so Yummy. Your daughter looks so cute in this photo, and the one of you and her when she was a baby is a treasure. I can't help but notice that chocolate dessert - it looks amazing.

    Happy June days, Carolyn.

    love, ~Sheri
