My name is Karen, I'm in my fifties and I am a working mum with 2 children. I live in East London and am lucky that getting into London only takes about 45 minutes on the train.
My eldest daughter has recently flown the nest and moved into a flat just 10 minutes away and I have a teenage son who - like most boys his age - spends all day gaming on PC. He only appears from his room for food or drink !!!!!!
I have been married for 28 years for which I think I deserve a medal.
I have two cats who I call 'my babies' but their real names are Leo (ginger fluffy one) and Holly (black and white) alias Big Boy and Baby girl. My neighbour thinks I am a mad Cat Lady as I talk to them all the time .....at least they never answer back !! A MEOW does not count.
|This was when they were only about 2 months old|
I enjoy cooking - well I have too as no one else in the house can cook. My husband did try a few times resulting in rice which resembled mash potato and garlic bread like a lump of charcoal. I am also keen on baking cakes and trying out new recipes.
My family call me a feeder - I like to buy nice things like cake and chocolate which I then tell them to eat
Walking is the other thing i like to do ....well after all the afternoon teas and chocolate eggs I need to do some exercise.
I am a great action movie fan too ....give me a Marvel film over a romantic comedy any day.
I decided to start this blog on afternoon teas as I want to share my passion and experiences with you. I hope it will tempt you to try some out and at same time not damaged your bank balance.
Hope you enjoy reading my posts and feel free to make comments - good,bad or silly :) x
