On the final Saturday afternoon in London V had booked a special girls treat - High Tea at the Dorchester. Wasn't I spoilt? I've never been anywhere quite that posh. You can tell by the front gardens that they take pride in how they do things.
First we had pink champagne with a tasty something on a big spoon that was placed in one bite into our mouths Yum!
After deciding which teas were would sample ( the Dorchester afternoon tea is a good place to start Madam. ) We were presented with a tray of sandwiches. 6 different with 6 different breads.( so, so fresh ) They were small and truly delicious. When V said she was a vegetarian they raced off and came back with a different selection for her. Predictable I know but the cucumber one was the tastiest.( closely followed by the egg, chicken salmon and ham )
That was followed by scones plain and fruit with jam and cream.( getting full now ) more tea, a peppermint brew this time.
Then "ta da" the sweet treats arrived. Look first. Surreptitiously take their photo they are so pretty.
The flower arrangements were divine ( and everywhere ); the visit to the ladies room was everything you might imagine ( has it's own attendant )To get there walk down a passageway with display windows of expensive items to buy. We had been there for 2 hours and drunk a lot of tea. Before we left I got cheeky and asked the manager on duty if he had a card I could take away...so now have a very flash silver embossed Dorchester card. Thanks V it was a magnificent outing and I would do it again any time.
J also planned a treat for all 4 of us. First a quick yummy dinner at Waggamama then knowing I like Queen he chose to take us to "We Will Rock You, "( the musical Queen by Ben Elton, at the Dominion Theatre.( on Tottenham Court Road ) What a brilliant spectacle. What a loud spectacle. ( 10 % too loud for me) but hey I loved it. I knew all the songs but have never seen them performed like that.What a shame Brian May wasn't there in person ( once a year he is )
