    We all seem to be getting on well, don't we?! There's a bit of fretting and fratching but I think we'll all get into our stride and decide what and who goes where.
    We've gone and got some Emergency Chairs, so there's room for everyone.
    Have we had a Welcome to New Tes Party, yet? Don't be shy! Let's mingle.
    Popcorn, anyone?

    Are fretting and fratching something to do with woodwork?

    Do you do scones with clotted cream? :)

    May we have enough for everybody who comes in over the next hour, please?

    And they can choose the Devonshire style (cream first) or the Cornish way (jam first).


    Best wishes

    I have some tea flavoured with vanilla and bourbon which would go beautifully with a scone. Cornish style for me please.

    A pot of Earl Grey with scones in the Devonshire style for me please.

    I baked a Madeira cake yesterday, there's plenty here for anyone who'd like some.

    I think you may have been a bit premature with the Emergency Chairs. Not sure we'll be needing them but it was a kind idea.

    It IS nice, isn't it!

    I'll start baking now for the 'afternoon tea' shift. Theo's already done scones so I'll offer Lemon Drizzle


    and cucumber sandwiches

    You can have my cake, @marymoocow. Cheese and onion pasties, please. Or cheese and tomato tartlets. Thanks.
