Love like Soap

“Love is a funny thing to describe. It’s so easy to feel and yet so slippery to talk about. It’s like a bar of soap in the bathtub – you have it in your hand until you hold on too tight.“ Michael Jackson

D and I went to the ritz for afternoon to celebrate my birthday. We been wanting to try the cucumber sandwiches since the moment we moved to london. we heard rumours that the tradition says that the cucumber needs to be so thin sliced that you can read a news paper trough it. ( you cant see nothing through it in the ritz!)
As a birthday special dieter asked the pianist to play some beyonce for me. :-)
it was a happy 31!

Afternoon tea is a light meal typically eaten between 3pm and 5pm. The custom of drinking tea originated in England when Catherine of Braganza marriedCharles II in 1661 and brought the practice of drinking tea in the afternoon with her from Portugal.[citation needed] Various places that belonged to the formerBritish Empire also have such a meal. However, changes in social customs and working hours mean that most Britons will rarely take afternoon tea, if at all.
Traditionally, loose tea is brewed in a teapot and served in teacups with milk and sugar. This is accompanied by sandwiches (customarily cucumber, egg andcress, fish paste, ham, and smoked salmon), scones (with clotted cream and jam, see cream tea) and usually cakes and pastries (such as Battenberg, fruit cake or Victoria sponge). The food is often served on a tiered stand; there may be no sandwiches, but bread or scones with butter or margarine and optional jam or other spread.[1][2][3]
A formal afternoon tea is, nowadays, usually taken as a treat in a hotel, café or tea shop. In everyday life, many British take a much simpler refreshment consisting of tea and biscuits at teatime.
While living in Woburn Abbey, Anna Maria Russell, Duchess of Bedford, is credited as the first person to have transformed afternoon tea in England into a late-afternoon meal rather than a simple refreshment.[4]
Isabella Beeton describes afternoon teas of various kinds: the old-fashioned tea, the at-home tea, the family tea and the high tea and provides menus.CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO MY BEYONCE SONG IN THE RITZ

every morning…..

when i wake up… i turn my face on my pillow to the left so i can peek out of my window to see which kind of bird will be sitting this morning on the tree infront of my house.
oh you cant imagine how many birds pass by my house.
the most frequent visitor is the dove. mostly the birds come alone in rare occasions they come in pair.
bon voyage

martino gamper

so yesterday after a burger lunch with hector i had a water and a cake in leila´s. My “d” works there since a couple of weeks – it was nice to see him working. he is for sure the most charming waiter ever. if you go on a saturday or sunday you can find out yourself – he always works both days.
anways, so while i was enjoying my dazzling cake i read some of the books they have at leilas. and found the 100 chairs project by martino gamper. i love his work and i would love to have this two chairs in my new place in london!!!
last year shortly after i moved to london i had tea in martino gampers house… well he dosent know… hahahaha – i just met his wife who is an amazing artist herself. the house they living in is very nice as well…. very colourful almost like pipi´s magical villa.
