Tea and McVitie’s …

T and bikkies

the next best thing to tea and a scone in my opinion are these tasty digestive biscuits with chocolate on one side…

the Scottish biscuit maker Robert McVitie started his business back in 1830

we didn’t do lots of shopping on our vacation but were tempted by a few treats like these mini biscuits while waiting for our plane to leave London’s Heathrow Airport…

  1. It was your help and encouragement that made this all possible. You are a true friend. It’s been fun visiting each other for several years over tea. I look forward to many more.

    Your biscuits look inviting, and that picture of an empty tea cup is beyond beautiful. Who knew an empty cup of tea could look so impressive. Well, YOU of course.

    Again, welcome to T stands for Tuesday.

  2. Of course you had to bring these little goodies back with you:),,,,,yummy…..I know from experience:)
