My mum sent me these two lovely gold cups and saucers last week and today felt the perfect day to sample tea and cake from them. So I baked a lemon drizzle (the perfect cake to cheer up a rainy day) and put on my most ladylike shirt and hat. I really love this shirt, I purchased it in Poland, it took me along time deciding whether to buy but I'm so glad I did; it makes me think of Miss Havisham. The hat was made by mother for my last birthday and its seemed the perfect accompaniment to my tea drinking!
