A very very unbirthday to me, to me!


Right..I know I said I don't really get the chance to celebrate my birthday with it being Christmas day.  And I know I went to London to celebrate my birthday in style.  But my lovely friend Debbie, who really is like a big sister from another mister to me, insisted on paying for a little birthday afternoon tea for me and my favorite people, at my favourite tearoom Serendipity.  Obviously Mama L made an appearance, as did my lovely VBF Natalie, as well as Debbie and myself.  June had taken great care in prettifying my little birthday table, complete with Christmas attire, cute little slate place names and teacup candles. I wore my reindeer antlers with pride, until they fell off when I started to eat my sandwiches!! I loved Debbie's little Santa hat too, and thought Natalie looked cute as can be in her wobbly snowmen hairband!  Our tea was a selection of sandwiches, fruit and cheese scones, with clotted cream, jam and berries for the fruit ones, Christmas cake, stollen and Christmas cupcakes, all freshly homemade and as much tea as we could drink. I had afternoon tea at Serendipity for my birthday last year, which was just as lovely, but the little Christmas finishing touches really made it special for me this year. I also got a lovely little present from June, a Queen of Hearts slide and matching shoe clips which I can't wait to wear :)

It was really nice that June could join us for 5 minutes towards the end of the tea, so we could pose for a lovely mad hatters photograph together :) perfect end to a perfect birthday tea!
        L-R: Natalie, Me, Mama L, Debbie and June-the crackers Christmas mad hatters!
