Tea Parteeee

Well katy and I had our tea party yesterday and what a great time we all had. After spending a lot of time with Nigella and the nras recipes on friday and i have discovered by inner domestic goddess and found i can bake... really! And a lot of my mates brought cakes too so it meant i could let them have more... for a donation of course ha ha.

By Saturday my enthusiasm was lacking, thank goodness for the OT's gadgets! However on Saturday with the bunting up and a lovely sunny day so we could use the garden and conservatory, people started arriving...early!! They were meant to come between 12 and 3pm, instead it was 11am and people were still there at 7pm!! Then the teens and the guys and others decided we would all have a takeaway , that lasted until 10pm, I actually went for a nap at 6!!!! We all wore tea dress or smart clothes and played petticoats and dreamboats 50's type songs. But it was great fun, a bit tired today so have rested, but all in all I would say to people do it!! We made a good amount for NRAS so we were delighted. Unfortunately all my pictures are too big for here but I put a picture of us oldies on the NRAS facebook website if you want a look.

love Axx
