Dorchester High Tea & Bling


Its been a stressful past week for me trying to get the Brunei Appellate Advocacy Workshop sorted with minimal help from those that are supposed to give most of it. Many thanks to AB (not Reeds) for all his help.

I unwound with Dorchester High Tea with some gals from the profession on Saturday. I was really looking forward to it but I was rather disappointed by the cold scones and un-rich tea (they skimped on the tea leaves). It reminded my why I didnt go last year. Apparently there are a couple of establishments here that you can get scones and even if they are not as tasty, at least they are warm! Maybe I'm just cynical after having tasted Devonshire scones with loads of cream in the English countryside but this is just my opinion and judging from the numbers that were there, I may be wrong. Anyway, here are a couple more pics :)




Now most of you probably already know that I'm (sort of) engaged....no I still dont use the term fiance...dun ask why. As most people that read this blog are women and we all love our bling (dont lie!!), here is a pic. Taken from CL's blog and I know she isnt too happy with it cos she brought the wrong lens but I still think its loads better than what I could have taken with my normal camera (yes I did try).



Some people have asked me why I didnt go for a bigger stone etc but I'm truly happy with the size of this baby and I asked him not to get me something bigger. There is a little history behind the design I chose as well and its definitely a ring I'll be happy to wear (hopefully) for the rest of my life :)
