I spent an industrious and rewarding afternoon at son Benjys school helping at, well, more than a tea party, not quite a festival, perhaps a mini-tea-festival. The sky wasn't blue but the air was warm and still. The festival marquee was set up and so were the tables laden with cakes, scones, cream, jam, lemonade and lashings of ginger beer (almost). The blankets were laid upon the grass and hay bales invitingly strewn around. Parents and children arrived, ate, played, chatted, crafted, lazed, and whiled away an enjoyable few hours.
Cream teas were the order of the day
and some sunny tunes
