Spring Tea Tours
Out of focus herbaceous border bigger
|Spring has sprung backwards this year, warm hot sunny days followed by lots of much needed rain. Before the rain set in NCOTAASD under took a quick strike mission on Suffolk using the mobile NCOTAASD HQ and its associated tea making facilities.
We managed lay our hands on this rather useful cream tea in Antiques haven Long Melford, haunt of Lovejoy and Bargin Hunters. Despite not wanting to visit, view or in any way associate with Antiques, they did prove very useful for keeping the younger members of staff in order. The mearest hint of trouble in the ranks would be met with threats of having to case Antique shops for in advance of any future visits by Nanny Nicey. In fact we mearly popped in to the Co-op to get some Garibaldis and pack of Fig Rolls.
Cause I only have Pies for you
Stacks of pies
|We asked which Christmas tea time treat we should review and you said Mince Pies. We really did want to do Lebkuchen this year but never mind.
Are all mince pies created equal? Certainly not, some even come in a My Little Pony purple box, as you can see in this pack shot. Don't Sainsbury's know Christmas is red with a bit of green?
Gift ideas from Nicey and Wifey
A NiceCupOfTeaAndASitDown special report
|This festive season, we thought it might be nice to round up some of the various sit down orientated things that have come our way recently that might make handy gift ideas. From tea, biscuits and cakes to books ( ours of course) and others, there might just be something here that helps you get Christmas just that little bit more sorted out.|
Most of the things we'll be looking at are available on line so you could do your shopping whilst enjoying a cuppa.
The same thing only bigger
We are going to adding to this over the first week or two in December so do keep popping back.
