First on the ice at Somerset House (skating like a drunken newborn foal.)
Pretty-pretty Tiffany Christmas tree and matching cupcake:
And champagne tea at No 1 Aldwych, with free refills on sandwiches (chicken & mustard mayo, egg mayo & cucumber, smoked salmon & cream cheese, plus mini Welsh rarebit.)
There’s nothing I like more in life than free sandwich refills.
Except perhaps warm scones with clotted cream and berry jam, served with a perfect mini apple and almond trifle on the side, like a custard-y chaser.
Or even a trio of cakes:
A trio of cakes: the only thing better than a trio of cakes would be a trio of Trios. I miss Trios.
And the icing on the cake/s? All of the above was hosted by a man of such charm and good humour that he was willing to balance Battenburg cake in his ears, like a demented Princess Leia, just to make me and my friend laugh.
