Last year I instigated a new family tradition.
I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but I know what I mean.
When I was young we did it every Sunday and I have very fond memories of it.
What is it?
It's Afternoon Tea!
I have memories of sandwiches, jelly and mum's homemade cakes (her butterfly cakes were legendary) whilst watching "The Phoenix and the Carpet" or some other BBC children's drama on Sunday teatime.
So last year I decided I wanted Izzy to have the same memories and every Sunday, well, every Sunday we're all at home, we have Sunday Dinner in the dining room where we talk about our week and then later we have our own Afternoon Tea in the lounge.
We have sandwiches, cheese scones, crumpets or something similar, followed by jelly and homemade cakes or biscuits. All beautifully presented on cake stands and sandwich trays and eaten off vintage pressed glass plates.
Unfortunately the BBC haven't obliged with a Sunday afternoon drama so we've turned to Lovefilm and Play.com for our entertainment and whilst eating our tea we have worked our way through "Worzel Gummidge" and "Wind in the Willows" and we are now working our way through the first series of "Merlin".
This week it was Easter Sunday so we had leftover cheese and biscuits from Good Friday, Simnel Muffins, Raspberry Buns and Blackcurrant Jelly:
What are your family traditions?
