That is a rather cozy looking Setting. Are you still away at a conference, or will we be graced with some more wonderful tea thoughts within the next few days?

Wishing you well,

Adam

Dear Adam,

Disgraced, perhaps :)

Don't go to conferences in the south of France at this time of year. As Wordsworth* once wrote, "It's as hot... as my pants."


Toodlepip,
