Today we got dressed up and treated our Nanny K to a ladies day out. There was no special occasion, Audrey and I just wanted to spend some quality time with this special lady. We began by pottering in our favourite store, filled to the brim with handmade dolls and dresses, doilies and handkerchiefs and smocking as far as the eye can see, it is heaven. Audrey was treated (spoilt) to a little baby in a beautiful vintage cradle. She kissed her baby and pat its head as we walked next door the The Tea Shoppe for lunch and devonshire tea. All the ladies from the church who run the Tea Shoppe "ooooohhed and ahhhhhed" over Audrey and her beautiful dress. She sang and she danced and made everyone laugh by giving her new baby some of her sandwich, even patting its mouth with a serviette. After we dropped our dear Nanny K home we decided it might be nice to surprise Luke at work, we miss him on the days he is away from us and I am so glad we did as his smile told me he was in need of a visit.
Winter may have arrived but today the sun was as warm as the love in our hearts and the tea in our bellies.
