tea sets

Did you know that in the early 1900’s the great lawns of private estates were filled with countless croquet and badminton fanatics.

They spent their summer days playing these games until the early evening.

Of course, to keep them from becoming dehydrated they had regular stops for drinks and their favourite choice of refreshment was ‘tea’, which was taken in the lawns and countryside amid the badminton, shuttlecocks and rosewood mallets.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
