I wasn’t overly well last night, and consequently, spend much of yesterday evening asleep. Awoke feeling a little better, and decided to share a blog.

A blog of loveliness, warmth and feeling, tinged with sadness. Not like me at all, really.

Yesterday there was a charity high tea, as evidenced by this photo, showing our Lord Petersham blend being made up for the first cup.

In attendance were myself and Lady Devotea, both our sons and their other halves.

It raised a fair bit of money to help get fresh water and sanitation to children in Laos.

It was a joyful event, but tinged with sadness as it’s the last time we’ll all be together for an unknown amount of time.

So, I decided to get up and write about why.

As Lucas and Zoe (once you’ve clicked forthcoming link you’ll be certain who they are) are currently occupying my office, I headed to Lady Devotea’s study to churn out my witterings.

And there, on her screen, was a blog post.

She has gazumped me!

Everything I wanted to say, but better.

So, I shall hand over at this point to Lady Devotea’s alter ego’s blog.

(Incidentally, it’s a far more useful blog than mine generally.)

And I shall make some tea.
