Does anybody go on tea dates?
Is it actually 'a thing' - or is it just something I did with my friends for so long that I came to assume that everyone else did it, too?
Once upon a time, a couple of friends and I would have regular tea dates at each other's houses. We'd plan on an afternoon when we were all free, buy at least three packets of milk, treats, make thermos flasks full of tea, and occasionally even make the treats ourselves. And then we'd sit down together...and we'd just talk. We'd talk for hours about life and its challenges; and then we'd pray for each other before parting ways.
My sister and I recently created our own version of a 'tea date' by treating ourselves afternoon tea at Villa Rosa Kempinski, Nairobi a few weeks ago.
