I feel strangely uninterested in food, probably because of stress and illness (I still feel really sick right now) but I feel more than usually attracted to the concept of afternoon tea. There's a toddler book about afternoon tea that Nat can partly read and when he finds it he becomes insistent about tea-and-cake midafternoon.
I would like it, too, but right now I think it's going to happen only if there's other adults around at teatime, because the pressure of making scones and whipping cream and making Thomas sit down with his scone instead of run off with it- well, that's crazy. Also I think I would like someone else to make and bring fussy pastries. I do cake and scones and cookies but I want someone else to make petit fours and madeleines, thanks. And anything with layers.
