Celebration Day

Saturday was officially the day for His Travel Romance and I to celebrate my British Citizenship. After visiting a camera shop in Fremantle to discuss entry level SLR's with a lovely English lad, we skipped down to San Churro for churro's and chocolate and Spanish coffee for breakfast!

We had time to run a few little errands before winding our way down to Maylands for high tea at Peninsula Tea Gardens which was simply delightful! Delicious mini sandwiches and quiches, delectable scones with sweet strawberry jam and freshly whipped cream, and cupcakes, eclairs, and many other delights filled out three tiers and later, our bellies.

The Royal Albert bone china was just gorgeous, and had I not plans to leave the country and my house in the next few months, I would have added a set to my little teacup collection. Mind you, I would look rather dapper sipping my tea from a bone china tea cup on my flight to New York...

Even Mr Willy Wag-tail decided to bring his family down for the day to nibble at some Parisian high tea. He said his favourite by far was the scone.

With appetites sated and pots of tea warming our hearts, we sauntered back to the car and came home to rest for a moment before heading back out again to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D. After hearing of many negative reviews of this film, I am delighted to announce that the negative reviewers simply have no idea what they're talking about! I found Johnny Depp as delightful as ever, I fell in love with the Cheshire Cat all over again, Matt Lucas was just gorgeous as Twiddle Dum and Twiddle Dee and the entire story was captivating and enchanting and I would suggest that anyone who delights in the imaginary will fall head of heels in love with this movie.

Just as I fell in love with this photo of His Travel Romance - so nerdy, yet so cute!
