Rachel treated me to Afternoon Tea at The Ritz, to celebrate my birthday in style (albeit 8 months after the event – it gets very booked up!).
We feasted, elegantly, on an array of very fine finger sandwiches, served on a three tier stand together with freshly baked scones with strawberry preserve and clotted Devonshire cream and a selection of afternoon tea cakes and pastries.
Loose leaf tea (we went for Darjeeling First Flush), and a glass of champagne to celebrate.
Plus a birthday cake, complete with candle and applause.
