Another very good Earl Grey with my lunch… I must say that I have been so impressed by the quality of Earl Grey tea in Crows Nest. It was hot today so not the most pleasant circumstances to sketch and drink tea in.
I have been finding it hard to have my lunch and do a decent sketch in my hour lunchbreak. I will have to go back and do a better version on a nicer day. I also meet a fellow sketching blogger Carol!
This is part of my review of the earl grey tea that is on offer in cafes in Crows Nest Sydney. The rest of the series is here.
While I was sketching I noticed that they had some very nice date and apple scones. I just HAD to buy one. So tonight I had a perfect supper but all the while I was thinking of the poor people of North Queensland awaiting for the onslaught of Cyclone Yasi.Somehow my $3 treat with a Taylors of Harrogate Earl Grey tea in Royal Albert china seemed extreme extravagance in light of the 1000s and 1000s that are spending the night in fear or in crowded stuffy shopping centres.
This is the first time I have used any of my new plates as part of my Royal Albert 100 years tea set – I have been collecting the set with Xmas gift money for the last three years.
Oh those sandwiches look so yummy. Love your tea set and the looks of some of those shops you visit.
P. S. Am thankful you are out of the danger zone for the hurricane's onslaught. I saw on our news that 400,000 people are expected to be affected by flooding from the hurricane heading your way. I hope all survive and do not have to deal with much in the way of loss. I wish I could do more than hope and pray though…
Beautiful work, as always, Liz. Send over just a little warmth this way.
