Been having the kitchen decorated this last three days. Job finished this morning. This afternoon we motored over to our friend Helga's house for a birthday tea party. Helga is German by origin but has lived in England for the last sixty years or so. Her (and our) friend Rosemarie is staying with Helga, and today was Rosemarie's birthday. The above photo is (left to right) Helga, Joan, Rosemarie and Ann. A very good time was had by all.

After a most stimulating German tea we motored home, driving into a magnificent sunset (above and below).

I think I've quoted this before, but it's worth repeating :-

From quiet homes and first beginning,
Out to the undiscovered ends,
There's nothing worth the work of winning,
Save laughter, and the love of friends.


Ain't that the truth ?

Well yes ~ and the joy of discovery ~ I always found that very satisfying ~

Clearly German teas are more invigorating than French teas, which if I recall correctly consist simply of a thankfully small cup of tisane (hot water strained over various weeds) perhaps with a thin slice of cake if it's a Sunday.
