In an earlier post I mentioned my daughter and husband attended a tea with the Duchess of York. A few people have asked me what it was like, unfortunately I was not on the invitation list. When my husband told me that he and Lulu would be attending a tea with Fergie at a very swank hotel, I immediately started training Lulu for the big event. My daughter was about five years old and she had experienced plenty of tea parties at home with pink lemonade. I was very nervous about her gracefully drinking actual tea with actual royalty. For one entire week Lulu did spit takes with every sip of tea. I added more sugar and cream and Lulu sprayed the tea out of her mouth every time. The day of the tea party I was a wreck, I watched the local news coverage of Fergie's visit and discovered that my husband was attending a Mother/Daughter tea party, he had not mentioned this detail. Hmmph! Thankfully, it ended up that the Lulu was served lemonade, so no one was sprayed in the face.
***I will do a future post about the time my husband went to a luncheon at the Drake Hotel with Princess Diana, he said there was absolutely no way I could go with him. Once again I watched the news coverage from home and learned that the luncheon was for women to promote breast cancer awareness. Double hmmph!!!
