We Love Tea

It's always nice when my husband took the day off and spent some quality time with me, including having tea together and this time we use the mugs with our names on them. I bought my mug from a greeting cards shop down town a few years ago while my husband has had his mug when he was probably in his 20s, it's a mug that he uses in his workplace. Our tea time was accompanied by Victoria Sponge Cake that I baked for him.

We also have the coasters with our names on them that we bought on our trip to Bletchley Park three years ago with his parents, I love the words on the coasters and I love personalized things :)

I recieved a comment from Beth asking if I would share the recipe for making Victoria Sponge Cake (Thank you for the lovely comment), so Here it is (a photo taken from my "BAKING" recipe book). I hope you can read it, click the image for larger version.

I hope everyone had a lovely and a blessed Tuesday! x
