I have just discovered your website.I can't believe it ! I am the world's biggest fan of tea,cakes and biscuits.
My partener recently had his 50th. birthday.We decided to have a garden party. We had an urn, supplying endless hot water for mugs of tea. On top of that we had mountains of scones, clotted cream and home made jam, as well as platters of cupcakes.
Everyone was blissfully happy.

|Nicey replies: Joan,
Thank you for that lovely picture of the cup cakes. It sounds like a charming event.
And talking of small cakes and tea urns. Wifey and I manned the tea and cake stall at the school fair last Friday and that little lot would have traded at 20p each which at rough first count comes to £22.80. Unfortunately due to some bad planning and people neglecting to write SOLD on some of the cakes we did manage to sell a few twice, although both Wifey and I were prepared to fight our corner if Sir Alan dragged us into the board room.
||Following Sue's impressive story of her 25 year old personal Kermie mug, I thought I would share the ultimate mug-revenge story with you. My friend Little Claire got into work at our law firm the other day to find that her lovely mug had a huge great crack in it. Being the ace detective that she is, she found out that the culprit was a partner whom, not wishing to sully the name of an otherwise great solicitor, we shall call H. H thought he would remedy the situation by covering Little Claire's lovely mug in copious amounts of packing tape - as I'm sure you can imagine, Little Claire was unamused... So, seeking revenge in her own inimitable way, she photographed H's own mug and put it up for sale on e-bay. Apparently it got 12 hits!|
So, if ever your own personal mug goes missing, check e-bay - you never know who might be trying to flog it as an act of revenge...
P.S. From another Cornish girl in exile, not only does the jam always go on before the cream, it's pronounced 'scone' to rhyme with 'gone', not 'scone' to rhyme with 'own'. I thank you.
