I am known as the mama of the family because i just love to have people over. Sometimes friends,family,neighbours and of course fellow mums. Friends on a diet often avoid popping round for fear of adding on calories because they know that visiting me equals lots of yummy home cooked food and i never take no for an answer. The other day whilst returning from the school run, i bumped into my dear friend Julia Gulia. As usual we agreed on date for tea and cake. Me being me i offered to host but my dear friend would have none of it. She promised me some yummy home baked chocolate cake and well….i just could not refuse.
When i arrived for our tea and cake a few days later, i could not believe all the trouble she had gone. She had baked he most amazing chocolate cake which was just waiting for me to dive into. My friend knows how much i love herbal tea and well any type of tea really and she made a huge effort. I had so many to choose from i was like a spoilt gummy granny.
It was such a blessing and as i left that afternoon i thought, sometimes all we need is a love,tea,cake and great chit chats. I also realised that it is perfectly OK to be loved on and spoilt because kindness can experienced both ways.
