Preparation. Join me tomorrow for another virtual tea party and find out what I’ve got planned for these ingredients.
In January, when I posted the first monthly virtual afternoon tea, it just seemed like a nice excuse to bake a cake and share a few random thoughts with you.
I had no idea that within a few weeks millions of people would be living our lives in an increasingly virtual space; avoiding overseas travel, working from home, stock-piling loo paper (NOT GUILTY OF THAT ONE) and suddenly showering elderly relatives with the attention they have always deserved.
Self-isolation, social distancing, flattening the curve; phrases that meant little or nothing in January, have become not only part of our everyday speech, but principles guiding daily life.
Luckily, my local grocer has been spared panic-buying of baking ingredients, so I’m off to make a few treats to share with you tomorrow.
Hope you can join me. Face-masks NOT required, and virtual hugging positively encouraged.
