"Betty's Box"



Sunday 6th March in UK is 'Mothering Sunday'....NOT 'Mother's Day' as it is now colloquially called......anyway, enough of me being pedantic...on with the post!!

Two of my children live away so parcels tend to arrive this week. Son usually sends huge bouquets of flowers which are much appreciated as I don't get given flowers very often.
Eldest daughter on the otherhand  comes up with something new every year.

This intriguing box arrived yesterady.

"Betty's" is known around the world for their 'tea rooms' and so gave me some idea of what might be inside.

Lifting the lid, this is the first thing I saw...




Then I was greeted by this.....


Looks like a wreath of some kind. The brown stuff was soft corrugated brown paper over thick fleece like material padding the tin



Then lifting the lid off the tin there was this explosion of shredded plastic.... it went every where!


Once all that was removed it revealed the goodies inside...

 

A box of tea bags, special 'Afternoon Tea' blend,
some special 'Cinnamon and Orange Easter Biscuits'...
and 'Simnel Cake' which is a traditional cake eaten only at Easter

Thank you Gena for such a wonderful present, much appreciated as always.

(I did ring her up as soon as it was delivered and later sent her all these photos)

oh...nearly forgot...

the cat loves the box too...
