A Coffee Morning.


Our neighbouring village of Constable Burton sometimes holds a Coffee Morning in the  village hall.   Today was one of those days and I went along with three friends.   Sadly there were not nearly enough folk there to make it worthwhile from a raising money point of view.   But it was a lovely morning.

The tables are always beautifully set out with nice china, the cakes are home-made and all delicious, and the company is delightful.  Friends W, M and I all had scrumptious coffee cake and C had
chocolate cake topped with strawberries and cream.

On our way out I dashed in front to take a photograph of the other three coming out.  As I was taking it a kind man offered to take one of the the four of us together.   I told him I would give him a mention, saying that a handsome young man offered.  He said to add that he didn't run off with the camera afterwards either!   (in fact my digital camera is now so old that it is no longer fashionable - rather like my mobile phone - and me also come to think of it).


The farmer and I have just done an hour in the front garden (it
 really needs a day!) and look who has chosen to pay us a visit,
along with several of her sisters yet to flower.

So sweet that you go out with your friends still. You looked the best and youngest of them all!

Any excuse for cake is a good excuse...

Dear Pat,
So utterly English -and charming.
Yes, credit to the helpful young man. People always moan about 'the younger generation' - and always have.
Strikes me there seems to be about the same ratio of goodies/baddies as there ever were and ever will be.
Next time take photos of the cakes too!

My big blousy poppies have all disappeared this year; no doubt they'll reappear in the future.

Lovely ladies who 'cake and coffee'! A book sale too - who could ask for more. The poppy is gorgeous. I love those big blousy ones.
