Time for tea!

Fraise Lachrymose has invited us all to tea, to celebrate the return of the Willows Three to PomPom. Tempting though it is to lay out the best china, and indulge myself, Friday is my Fast Day – so no cakes for me.

However, if I had the dress (and the figure!) I would be wearing this:

or maybe this

I would be drinking my tea from this tea service

and enjoying these delicacies

or these

or even (because I’m in France) these

But instead, I’m wearing jeans and a thick jumper, drinking 52 calorie a mug Cup-a-Soup and waiting formy next student to ring me for his phone lesson. Sigh.

I hope everyone has a lovely time, and I look forward to reading more about the Wind in the Willows book on PomPom’s blog.

Here are Mole and Ratty enjoying a picnic tea – perhaps we could gatecrash their teatime treats!

    We have some Wind in the Willows stories on cassette(!) tape, and my son and I love to listen to them. I heard the voices used as soon as you mentioned Mole and Ratty, and smiled. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Totally with you on that first dress! I haven’t had any phone lessons for ages… ๐Ÿ™
    Plenty face-to-face, but no one wants to ‘phone home’!
    Have a great weekend.

    Do you know, dear Dormouse, I’ve had so much virtual tea and cake now that a 52 calorie cup-a-soup sounds like Heaven! Thank you for the very gorgeous pictures though- I’ll have the first one, please!

    I can fit in both those dresses, they just won’t zip or button. -snort!-
    Visiting via Pom and the Boys; enjoying your blog.
