Last Sunday Natalie and I went to Reading’s Malmaison for some Afternoon Tea – for which I have now broken my A.T. virginity (and it feels great). People were going crazy for the weather forecast as finally warm temperatures were arriving on British soil.
Therefore I decided to take the opportunity to get my legs and toes out that have been in hibernation. Out of everyone I saw in Reading, I have to say I was probably 1 in 3 who thought that summer had arrived. But the way I see it is, the sun/warmth is not an everyday occurrence here so better make the most of it!

Afternoon Tea at Malmaison, Reading
Nice and warm by the fire! (Definitely not summer yet)
The sandwiches were a delicious selection of cucumber & mint, salmon & cream cheese, egg mayo & cress and ham & mustard. We were marvin’ so we scoffed those down very quickly!
The scones were warm and we could smell them as soon as they came out! There was a side of clotted cream (which looked like ice cream) and strawberry jam. We had 2 scones each, one with raisins and one without. I usually don’t like it with raisins but it was actually a success!
We had a choice of Victoria Sponge, Battenbourg and Bakewell Tart. I chose battenbourg as I love marzipan and Nat chose Victoria Sponge. It didn’t matter who’s was who’s anyway as we shared like good sisters do!
