We had a Mad Tea Party for our daughter's kitchen tea a couple of years ago. Now I am organising one for our Wedding Anniversary. Here's some inspiration. Let's start with some tea making tips.
Then get really silly....
One morning I was having my coffee and Poppy wanted a pat, she wouldn't leave me alone so I gave her a pat and afterwards I noticed a cat hair on the edge of my coffee mug and when I went to pick it off a whole heap of hair that was on my hand fell into my cup. It was pretty funny at the time, maybe you had to be there.
I love these awesome retro Library posters. Check the rest out on Flickr.
"The truth is Enid Blyton was arrogant, insecure, pretentious, very skilled at putting difficult or unpleasant things out of her mind, and without a trace of maternal instinct. As a child, I viewed her as a rather strict authority. As an adult I pitied her."But her other daughter, Gillian disagrees with this version.
"My mother ... could communicate with children in a quite remarkable way, and not just on the page. She was a fair and loving mother, and a fascinating companion."
