270. Royal Albert Hall afternoon tea

I LOVE afternoon tea. What's not to like about an in-betweeny meal that's mainly cake?

With Mum and Dad

It was recently my Mum and Dad's 40th wedding anniversary and I bought them afternoon tea at the Royal Albert Hall, a spectacular venue that mum remembers visiting as a child which when combined with Dad's sweet tooth seemed like I was on to a winner.

They sweetly invited me so we could catch up after a few busy weeks.

The food was really elegant and intricate, all tiny squares of bread that looked like they'd been trimmed with the help of a ruler. For me, it's the sign of a classy establishment if they can make an egg sandwich look posh.
