||Hi Nicey and Wifey;|
Thought you might get a smile from this photo I posted today on my blog
Of course, I rarely drink from tea cups. It is mugs all the way around this house.
All the best,
Nancy Bea Miller
|Nicey replies: Wow Nancy,
That's utterly superb, you've got quite a Margrite thing going on there, I'm half expecting a train to pop along in a moment.
I thought I would keep you up to date with our tea related race in the lake district.
It went down a storm and in the end team gingerbread won it. The weekend was great fun to organise and everyone who took part is desperate to have another race. as a result there will be another TRC next year.
Stay tuned! Visit our website at: teamteacake.com
|Nicey replies: Horrah for all of you,
Thanks for keeping us up to date with your cycle-tea-and-cake marathon. Well done for showing the value of exercise! It enables one to have their cake and eat it too although seven times in one day does seem excessive. Team NCOTAASD enjoy a good bit of mountain biking, especially if we are a bit lost in forest. Good luck with next years charity one.
I have been press ganged into a Children In Need Fun-Run on Friday lunch time. 'Fun' and 'Run' are two words I would not expect to find in the same sentence let alone joined with a hyphen, so wish me luck. I have signed the disclaimer absolving them of responsibility if I keel over half way round.
Edit Right we did it but I fear I may never walk again. Taking to the bath with a cup of tea and some Ibuprofen.
Love the website. Prawnzilla made me laugh a lot!
I thought you'd like to know about something my girlfriend and I are organising. It's a mountain bike adventure race in the Keswick and Borrowdale are of the Lake District on Saturday the 4th of November this year.
It's called the TeaRoom Challenge and is intended for all abilities. We're running it to bring people together and enjoy mountain biking and experience the pleasures of tea, cake and the lovely tea rooms of the Lake District.
Details of the event including the rules are on our website.
We have spoken to a lot of the tea rooms and if it is successful this year, they are happy to give the money for tea and cake towards a charity next time we run it. Everyone would be a winner!
Thanks for your time,
|Nicey replies: That sounds like a very good plan indeed. Let us know how you all got on we are looking forward to all those pictures of tea and cake (as well as the lovely scenery).|
||As if news of the impending demise of the Plain Chocolate HobNob wasn't bad enough, one must now face the fact that we are moving out of the Cream Tea Season. Living in the west country, perhaps we lockels are more sensitive than most to this time of year but the sad fact remains that with the passing of the fresh strawberry season, we now must face a sudden down-turn in cream tea uptake.|
Wifey-Darling will no doubt become quieter, virtually hibernating over winter until the daffodils and Cream Tea signs start to re-appear next spring. All I ask is that your devoted readers and well-wishers keep in mind the many who shall be suffering these coming months. Some suggest Panettone therapy, but it's not the same, it really isn't.
Here's some lovely crumbly scones Wifey-Darling made earlier this year for a do:
|Nicey replies: That really is the nicest picture of strawberry topped scones we have ever seen.|
||Sylvia and Alice have been busy this September making very large and very fine cakes. Here is photographic evidence of our Battenburg slices and Butterfly buns. We would love to see them on your ever so splendid website.|
|Nicey replies: Exquisite work.|
