So with very little time to spare I contacted Maria straight away to see if we could meet...
She was so sweet and happily said that I would be very welcome
Yesterday was a lovely spring day and Fin dropped me off at Maria's beautiful Victorian home (similar to the one in the photo)
Maria had her Rosey teapot ready and she poured me a cup of tea as I sat in her stunning Victorian kitchen full of prettiness
...after shopping we stopped for afternoon tea before saying farewell
