My Sunday Photo

I was lucky enough to spend the day in Cardiff on Thursday, with my mam, shopping.

It was a lovely chilled day, that ended with afternoon tea, at the Hilton (one of my mums birthday presents). I have only ever been to one afternoon tea, before this, so I was simply expecting a range of sandwiches and cake, which they did.

However, what they also did, is give you a large choice of teas to choose from. Now I'm not a tea drinker, but my mum loves her green tea. When it arrived, it came with a little card, and instructions for the perfect stewing time for your particular choice.

It was timed using this:

How brilliant is that! Green was 1 minute, yellow was 2 minutes and black was 5 minutes. 

It's the simplest things, isn't it?

Obviously a day in Cardiff, at the moment, would not be complete without a picture of the rugby ball, in the Castle.


It's a brilliant piece of artwork, for something I have no interest in!

  3. Wow, that tea timer is very cool! A Welsh person who doesn't like rugby? Unbelievable! (I'm not keen either - I'm only really interested in rugby when my kids are playing it!)

  6. That set of timers is brilliant. I'd never have thought of that.

    Love the rugby ball. Is that a permanent structure? In Oxford, we've got a house with a shark in the roof.

  8. I experienced a tea timer a couple of years ago when we went for afternoon tea - it definitely is the simplest things. Loving that rugby ball too! #mysundayphoto
