I'm baaa-aaack!

 I didn't mean to have such a long break, sorry! I was just bloody exhausted after Blogtoberfest- just wrong timing I think, starting in a new area at work, and an extra day a week, I also found the blogging tiring! I've realised I like to share stuff I'm happy and passionate about, not just blogging for the sake of it- and I'm OK with it. We all change. But I thank all the peeps involved with Blogtoberfest 2012, and will be back with a wrap up post (I hope!)

Rather than try and go back 2 weeks, I thought I'd start with today! This year, my birthday is a bit more cheery, my sister is in town and helping me have a good one for a change!

We headed out this afternoon for Afternoon Tea, sometimes called High Tea. 

Jess may look a bit different from these pics.....

Hooya!  34 weeks at the moment. The niece or nephew I'm soooooo excited about!

 The girl was loving it! I only stopped her once I knew she was heading to the i-think-I'll-be-sick-if-i-keep-going stage. Cos I'd have to deal with it later!

  There were flavoured mini profiteroles (above) and an ice cream bar we likened to Willy Wonka land! These were actually sorbets, mmmmm.

A glass of champers for the grown up, and lemonade, water and tea. And the treat at the end was the kiddo was half price! Which wasn't mentioned on the web site, so an extra bonus! We definitley recommend the place!

And a beautiful afternoon out in the sun too boot!

Totally get it - I was worn out after Blogtoberfest too - needed a week off to recover. Happy Birthday to you - those sweet treats look delicious.

I take my hat off to anyone who did Blogtoberfest!! I've heard it takes some time to recover from it :-) Happy belated birthday too and how exciting to become an Aunty again soon - your sis is due just a couple of weeks after me. Mel x

Hey Bec, that was one mouthwatering post!
How have you been since Blogtoberfest? I can relate to what you said, I also needed a bit of time out after blogging and reading blogs every day!!
That said, I just wanted to let you know that I'm hosting another (albeit gentler and more introspective) blog challenge over the month of December called #reverb12. Would be so rapt if you joined us!
There's a little giveaway too. :-)
Details here:
Take care,
