Virtual Tea over at Farm Wife's place!!

I went a visiting over to Farm Wife's blog and I was pleased to see that she is running her virtual tea party again. I first went a couple of years ago - dressed up in my Sunday best. You can go too, you just have to answer the follwing questions!! I have typed in my answers.... what do you think??

Please introduce yourself tell us how you came to be a visitor here at of a FarmWife

Hello! I am Secret Housewife, or Sarah , which ever you prefer. I have been visiting Farm Wife since about 2007. I stumbled across Farm Wife and her Farm Hands by browsing through Blogger and I immediately enjoyed her blog, felt at home. Farm Wife has been kind and supportive over the last 2 ½ years and I love reading about her and her family.

What book is currently on your bedside table (or coffee table) and are you really reading it?
I have 3 at the moment: JK Rowling’s “ Tales of Beedle the Bard “ ( not too bothered about that one. “Villette” by Charlotte Bronte, an old favourite that I am rereading. 3 Cups of Tea – about Greg Mortensen, just started it.

Is there anything you would like to accomplish this summer?

I want to lose some weight and get started on my Degree Course.

Did you take any lessons as a child? What kind & did you retain anything you learned?

Mmmmm… I wanted to learn ballet and took a few lessons, but my mum promised she would stay and never did, so I gave up. My real joy was horse riding. I took lessons from aged 8 to 18 and loved it. I was a bit scared sometimes, but my favourite was jumping. Somehow I was never scared of that!I often wonder if I will ever ride again. I hope I will - but I'm a bit frightened that I might break if I fell off!!

If someone had told you 10 years ago what you'd be doing now, would you have believed them?

I don’t think I would have believed I could have run the London Marathon, or that finishing my Degree would be a possibility. But I never say never, so maybe I would have believed it!

What are you making for dinner tonight?

We have already eaten… sausages, new potatoes, hispi cabbage, carrots, onion gravy and mange tout from our garden… oh, and white wine.

There. Thank you for inviting me, Farm Wife. Toodle Pip.

Oh, I'm so glad you came, and I love the picture you posted. Those scones look lovely.

I LOVED Three Cups of Tea. It was so inspiring. Thanks for reminding me of that book; it will have to take up residence on my bedside table again.

Your dinner sounded delicious. Makes me wish again that we were neighbors. =)

Thank you so much for coming over, dear! It's wonderful to have friends who come every year for the tea party, even when I forget to host it for months at a time.

I also have Villette on my side table. I've had issues with it because I do not speak French, but I plan on digging back into it this summer.

That tea looks just wonderful even at this time in the morning !

I've had issues myself trying to photograph a decent tea setting; tried a million times but each time something isn't quite right. I think I'll take your lead and try outside - if it ever stops raining !

Nipping over to Farm Wife now, it all sounds so darn nice .....

I have to admit, Elise, that my photo is not actually taken by me. I wish I had as the light is lovely. I hope you enjoy your trip to Farm Wife's place! S
