“Half memoir, half travel, A Yank Back to England...is an absolutely wonderful book, not only about going home again but also about love and family and tradition and the passage of the years.”
—Michael Dirda, Pulitzer Prize-winning literary critic (Washington
Post)

And the winner is...

The deadline for our first giveaway has come and gone, and we have a winner! Before we proceed with the drum roll, we wish to thank everyone for all the tea stories and the fabulous birthday wishes--so sweet (and what a surprise!). Too bad I didn't ask for cake!
Also, we are thrilled to have several new followers, and lots of new visitors. We love new bloggy friends.
How we picked the lucky winner
After we took out the tea drinkers who snuck in from the other side of the pond (coals to Newcastle, sorry!), the coffee-totallers, and the under-age blogger, we assigned numbers starting with "1" to all remaining entries. Then we added in the photo senders. We ended up with 30 entries--very respectable, what--so we used the roulette wheel. And the winner of our English tea giveaway is...our stitchy friend Daffycat. Congratulations--well done, and thanks for the link too!
Come and get it! Well, email us your address, and it will come to you.
Thanks to all who entered, and keep visiting!
Cheers,
Denis & Frances

I don't like tea!

I thought of you when I was in New York. Mostly, I thought to myself, "I should have taken the hint and brought my own tea along". I didn't make a fuss or anything but I nearly keeled over when I realised breakfast places in NY don't serve tea.
