My relationship is old enough to vote!
Yesterday was my 4th wedding anniversary with Richard and our 18th anniversary of being together. Richard bravely staggered out of bed where he was busy dying of the man-flu, and we put on fancy clothes and went out to the Secret Surprise I had booked. This being vegan afternoon tea at La Suite West hotel, which is near Bayswater/Queensway.

I married a very handsome man!

Here are vegan scones with coconut cream and fresh strawberries. There were also sandwiches (but you know what sandwiches look like). The tea was called Four Floral and was jasmine tea with rosebuds and two other plants I can't remember. It wasn't bitter like some jasmine tea can be:

Me, Paploo, dino, and scones

Also two selfies from Richard's phone:

Richard looks so happy :)

YAY!

(I recognize Dino, of course, and I'm happy to see he's still doing the herbivore photos, but who's your other friend?)

You don't know Paploo, our brown ewok son? Gosh! He has lived with us for a very long time!

I think he signed our holiday card last year, but this is the first time I've seen him in photos! Thank you for sharing!

Thanks, it's from The Dark Angel, who are currently having financial problems because of the floods in Yorkshire at Christmas. I really like their stuff for men, but most of it is too GOFF for Richard :)

Congratulations. Lovely, loving pictures. I trust the occasion banished the man-flu, if not wishing Richard a quick and full recovery.

Congratulations on your anniversary! Good choice - I took a friend for afternoon tea at that place and it was lush, though personally I didn't like the coconut cream, it being made from and tasting of, coconut, which I dislike. How were the cakes? I found them disappointing when I visited - it's possible to get very good vegan cake, but we weren't offered any.
