  4. Lovely post, although I can't believe you hate tea. I don't think I could live without it haha! :)
    I love lemon sorbet too!

    Emily / Glittery Teacups

    1. LOL! Nope, tea just doesn't do it for me at all. I have tried it with and without milk, with and without sugar and it still isn't happening. Coffee, NOW you are talking - decaff and black is how I like it.

      As for lemon sorbet? I could eat it every day but restrain myself. I blame Waitrose for having a gorgeous one. I keep it to about once every 2 weeks! ;-)
