This has been an unusual week. Moozles and Dubz has been at their grandparents' house since Saturday. Husband and I were home alone from Sunday until Saturday. That's right, one whole week of peace and quiet. One week without playing superheroes or reading children's' books. And yes, we missed having those little ones around. But it was also one week without mediating fights or dealing with tantrums. And it was one week hanging out with Husband. And since it was my birthday week (the big 4-1), I basically got what I wanted. So on Tuesday, after visiting the Tate Modern, we went to The Café at the Hotel Café Royal.
I have walked by The Café loads of times, and have always drooled over their beautiful window displays, but I was never hungry as I passed by. But this time our visit was planned. There were so many lovely things to choose from, but I decided upon the Bounty macaroon while Husband had a coffee and walnut cake. And of course we had tea. Tea for two, and the perfect way to start my birthday week.
