The Dollivers' Tea Party
All this talk of the tea party has got the Dollivers interested in politics, or at least in tea parties. So today we got out the best hand hemmed napkins and afternoon tea tablecloth, little vase of flowers for the table, and Call Me Michele put on her lace gloves and everyone put on a hat, and we set up the party.
The photo shoot was over before they remembered the cream and the little dish of lemon slices, but they were added in before our guest arrived, bearing yet more food.
A great time was had by all, and the Ds decided to vote for doing this a lot, as did Boud.
One thing I'm still in the process of discovering is small pleasures like entertaining at home, impossible for years, baking the hot biscuits with butter and tomato jam inserted, making the chocolate oatmeal lace cookies, just luxury.
So I'm putting local blogistas on notice: if you're not careful you may be joining the tea party...
