Anyone for crochet... whoops.. croquet ?

Well, we had a lovely Afternoon Tea on Sunday. The sunshine was glorious, and this was the scene that greeted us as we drove up towards our destination - a sea of bluebells...


After some deliberation...terrace or lounge ..we took tea in here.


And what a tea !
Cucumber, smoked salmon with cream cheese, ham & mustard and chicken sandwiches .This was followed by a cake stand piled high with cream filled scones, chocolate & hazelnut brownies and carrot cake...all perfectly finished off with a lovely cuppa and handmade shortbread biscuits !

We rounded the afternoon off with croquet on the lawn with the children .....
..and, even though I know it's not usual to celebrate your anniversary with your children, it was infact lovely...despite the crocheted pink dress remaining on its hanger at home...never mind there's always next year !
