So far this winter has been a proper one: snowy and cold. Just like I remember my childhood winters. This has lead to me reading even more than usual. Right now it's Eating For England.
"Afternoon tea may be the only meal we take that is purely and utterly for pleasure. Perhaps this simple fact is what keeps its popularity steady, not just with tourists looking for the English experience, but with ladies who gossip, lovers of a certain age, aunts treating nieces and nephews, and those celebrating a birthday. It is something that exists purely to make us feel good about life."
