Tea party across the miles

Just before christmas  I signed up for another 'swap', this time it was tea bags.  This tea party was organized by Linda - Prairie Flower Farm, who paired up participants, who then mailed each other a christmas card and tea bag.  For some reason, christmas post overload I expect, my card and bag never arrived but got 'returned to sender, address unknown, no such person, no such zone lah lah la.......'.  Luckily for me, Sandra, my swap partner from Villars de Lans, successfully re-mailed it to me.
Quite by coincidence, Richard bought me a tea-pot for christmas!

No tea party is complete with out a Victoria sandwich cake so this afternoon Tino and I whipped up this 'almost' gluten (using soy and rice flour) free one.  I say 'almost' as last minute I checked the raising agent and it contained wheat flour!!  Never mind, no-one here is gluten intolerant, it's just after my gluten free bread disaster last week I though i'd try a cake this time.
