Hello poor, neglected little blog. I still love you! You can’t tell, but I’m making an apologetic face right now. It looks a bit like this :( But I’ve been a bit busy and so I’m hoping to resume normal service towards the end of August when things might calm down a bit. Because until they do, while I love have TONS to scrap about, I have no actual scrapping time.
I know. Shocking.
So I present unto the internet gods at the little alter of blogging, this page about the Tea Potter 2013. It's only taken 3 months.
The tea potter is now a tradition. I think three years qualifies as traditional. In fact, I should probably look to expand to other annual celebrations and locations. But for this year, we hit YumChaa, the first London tea place I discovered and an old favourite largely because they permit you to inhale vast quantities of tea leaves before settling on which variety you want swimming around in your pot. And because vanilla scones are yummy. And so is lemon drizzle cake, and chocolate cake. And because they give you so much tea paraphernalia and have such a shabby chic look that you can set up really arty (ie pretentious) photos. We pottered to another couple of places too, because let’s face it, without that it aint no tea potter. But Yum Chaa will always be up there. Even though their wifi totally sucks!
P.S. One of my new year’s resolutions was to say yes to more things. To this end, I am currently trying to balance my job, Guides, being the County International Advisor (purely because the acronym is CIA!) and leading a GOLD project with Girlguiding to Cambodia. And as fun is important too, I’ve been making more of an effort to see my friends, and a another new year’s resolution - to find Mr Second Date – has turned out to occupy quite a chunk of my time over the last few months (and I hope he continues to do so :D) I know we’re all busy and hey, I like it that way, but I think a good New Academic Year's Resolution will be to realise that sometimes saying 'No' is OK too.
P.P.S. I'm still dropping in on blogs when I get the chance (although still pouting over the Google Reader demise).
