Make time to sit down and enjoy an afternoon treat. Lately life seems to go by so quickly. Life is fast paced and full of activity. For me, working long hour days, I don’t get the chance to sit down and enjoy and a cup of coffee or a pot of tea with a little treat.
Having some down time is very important. It’s time to collect thoughts and enjoy some quiet time. I know it’s hard. Even though I sit down, I’m constantly thinking about planning our family meals for next week or what chores and events I need to attend to next weekend.
The ritual of sitting down for a cuppa is long gone but I would like to bring it back. I enjoy a cup of coffee or sometimes a pot of freshly brewed tea. I always need to accompany my drink of choice with a sweet treat. Of late, I have put aside my Sunday afternoon, even for just half an hour to sit down, enjoy a cuppa. I often read a magazine while partaking in a sweet treat.
If I can do it al fresco, it’s even better.
For treats, I like scones. I’ve recently had the delicious range of scones from baker’s delight. Or if you’re up to baking up a storm to create your own special treat to enjoy, you can look here for some of my recipes.
