Afternoon Tea Again!

I'm really enjoying my maternity leave!

Yesterday I cancelled my travelcard and went to the cinema to see Eclipse (the 1130 showing!!). I thought that Eclipse was so much better than New Moon ... but couldn't convince Mr Plum to come with me, so went on my own!

This morning I had a nice lie in (until 11am!) listening to Women's Hour while reading and doing some knitting. There was an interesting bit about "Mummy Bloggers" which I am sure many of you will be interested to listen to (I'm sure that it will be available on the i-player).

After popping to Tesco and doing some tidying ... I headed into town to meet some friends at The Cadogan which I booked through www.afternoontea.co.uk and got for the bargain price of £15!


My request for veggie and pregnant friendly sandwiches was met ... my favourite pud was the white chocolate and raspberry mousse in a chocolate shell ... wonderful!

We sat there gossiping until about 8pm ... what a lovely afternoon!

Tomorrow I am hoping that the nesting instinct will kick in ... it hasn't so far!!

Mr Plum has suggested that I put together my own guide to afternoon teas ... watch this space!

It sounds like you are making the best of this maternity leave, lie in's and cream teas! I love Womens hour too, I podcast them all and listen to them on the way to work, I will listen out for that one.

What a delicious looking tea. I am feeling peckish just looking at it!

Enjoy your maternity leave and especially those lie ins. It might be a good few years before you get them again!!

oh yes you could go round testing all the afternoon teas and offer to blog about them for publicity and get them for free :-) Oohh my nesting started about 3 - 4 weeks before the birth and I wore myself out with scrubbing walls ! bonkers!
