What an afternoon tea means to me.

Afternoon tea used to mean an afternoon out at some big country home like Crewe hall or rookery hall .
A lovely selection of sandwiches and cakes and pasties ..... ah the bliss of it all. All in miniature with scones and jam and oooo the cream ...... A chance to relax and enjoy some time with friends or family

But since  having G afternoon tea now means a kids cafĂ© or soft play centre.... with a rushed cup of tea and a soggy cake or one that's really dry because its sat around for half the day. To be honest its sometimes easier to stay at home make a pot of tea let G have a nap.& enjoy a nice home made fairy cake or banana loaf.

Gone are the days of fancy afternoon teas but I wouldn't change a thing !
