To pinch an intro from the very first one and only tea room thread. in 2009.

The tea room is now officially open, serving hot chocolate, tea, freshly-squeezed orange juice and a range of home-baked muffins. Tablecloths and crockery are charmingly mismatched antiques (no Cath Kidston here). We overlook an attractive although somewhat overgrown garden, with a distant view of rolling countryside.

Everyone is welcome but house rules dictate that anyone indulging in fisticuffs will be ejected.

Please come in.

We seem to have fetched up in Ireland, this place looks remarkably like a pub,There is even a guiness barrel over there. The NMBs are all sporting shamrocks. The mirror ball is here, but I leave teh rest of the unpacking to someone else.

::I'm in the mood for dancing, gonna dance the night away::
nice one UniS! Two years and counting. Unbelievable.

Scout19075 Wed 15-Jun-11 23:14:02

Two years -- impressive!

Many thanks, UniS!

Good night lovely new tea room!

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Wed 15-Jun-11 23:32:27

Wahoo!

I'm in the mood for dancing, too

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Wed 15-Jun-11 23:35:22

The costumes! The dancing! Oh, how we lived then.

Tee2072 Thu 16-Jun-11 06:52:07

Oh Irish pub means full Irish breakfast!! And Irish brew. wink

To be sure, here we are in merry Ireland! I see Donki's been booked on the overnight ferry (First Class) and is bringing with her the tea room horses Early and Lady Grey, the bison, various other assorted animals and a selection of Bishops and other faith leaders. Jolly good. And from the very small bites in my morning toast and the footprints in the butter, I'd say the NMBs are already here too?

JM, you're quite safe - not an Aspidistra to be seen ::hastily hides it behind the bar curtains::

brew! Excellent! And a full Irish!

amberlight Thu 16-Jun-11 08:03:10

PS anyone seen Mellors??!

Tee2072 Thu 16-Jun-11 08:04:10

amber he headed out the back entrance muttering about the beer garden and sheep. hmm

purpleknittingmum Thu 16-Jun-11 08:05:25

Ooo hello ladies! I have not been on much lately and keep forgetting about the tearoom! blush

I will try and come here more often!!

UnSerpentQuiCourt Thu 16-Jun-11 08:05:25

Oh, I am glad to see the charmingly overgrown garden again! I well remember Wriggle splashing in puddles out there and carrying her guinea pig in a bucket (before it realised that guinea pigs can move and sent its alter ego in here to RacingPig) ... and now she's nearly 5!! Mellors made bonfires with the tea room children, I seem to remember ... with them, not out of them, Amber. Time for him to get back to gardening; he's been focussing exclusively on massage recently.

mistlethrush Thu 16-Jun-11 09:25:35

I see we seem to have gathered an interesting collection of chickens too - all shapes and sizes. They probably followed the trail of breadcrumbs that Unis left.

Any one for a fried egg with some freshly picked mushrooms?

brew all round - if you want to fill them with something stronger than tea, that's up to you - but there appears to be plenty of choice.

oxeye Thu 16-Jun-11 11:26:16

Yummers for breakfast. White and black pudding please. Yes. Pub breakfasts one of my fondest memories of Ireland. That, and getting engaged!!

Loving watching mellors in the garden with wriggle, cmot tiddler, mistlechick, milk, kittenito and gatita, oxboy and Uniboy and jbaby all building bonfires and running around in their watwrproofs. I can see lct and babyscout are nearly ready to join! Girl is enjoying joining in by helping the little ones. I love our children grin

Tee2072 Thu 16-Jun-11 11:46:28

Oxeye I love how the breakfast comes before getting engaged!! grin

I hope someone has a hand on LCT or he'll be in the bonfire. He's the curious sort...aren't they all at this age?

UnSerpentQuiCourt Thu 16-Jun-11 11:52:43

Feeling the need to be looked after this morning - people keep telling me to look after my poor AP, DH obviously needs a lot of looking after since he finds uncertainty impossible to deal with and times are very uncertain, Wriggle keeps standing in front of me saying 'You need to look after me' , the various dogs, cats, guinea pigs, chickens, chicks and quails keep reminding me of their needs, my class needs lessons written for them tomorrow .... the weak link is that no one looks after me. <<Wails in self pity>>

And every time I sit down to work on DH's CV, my project for this morning, AP comes in to ask me something - literally every couple of minutes.

And trip to London is off and it was my Treat For Myself and I was looking forward to it ... <<Sniff>>

UnSerpentQuiCourt Thu 16-Jun-11 12:20:42

However ... briskly pulls self together ... it's nearly time for lunch and it's brocoli soup - can I interest anyone in a small bowlful ... nice to see MistleChick has been making rolls again. grin

mistlethrush Thu 16-Jun-11 12:26:26

<suruptitiously gives Serpent ((((hugs)))) and plonks down a steaming brew and some freshly made toast>

oxeye Thu 16-Jun-11 12:27:37

<<strokes and soothes Racing>>
I have to say Wriggle standing in front of demanding she be looked after does make me smile bless her
why is trip off??

AandO Thu 16-Jun-11 13:19:30

Ooh, a tearoom in Ireland!

I am also back in Ireland. I got here last wednesday. So 8 months after I left I am finally back and trying to acclimatise (sp?). So, how is everyone? One new face I think (Tee?) and the rest are name changers right? I popped in briefly at a moment of distress some months back while still travelling but should be back permanently now. xxx

AandO Thu 16-Jun-11 13:22:32

< passes a plate of chocolate biscuits to Serpent> That sounds stressful Serpent. DH can't help? (not up to date emoticon is needed!)

amberlight Thu 16-Jun-11 13:33:32

I'm not a namechanger - I'm definitely still me smile Hi A&O!! Good to see you back here!

UnSerp, eek re all of that, and yes please to the soup. Have a (((hug))) from me too (of suitable safe sort that can be converted to something more useful since this is the tea room of requirement)

FineLad is helping supervise the various tiddlers and youngfolk with Mellors, you'll be pleased to hear.

oxeye Thu 16-Jun-11 13:53:36

Good old Finelad!
Welcome home AandO we're here to welcome you back! I loved my book. It sits on my shelf and makes me smile

Scout19075 Thu 16-Jun-11 19:26:54

Thanks, FineLad, for tossing TS around, turning him upside down, swinging him -- my arms were getting tired and he wanted to keep playing.

HI A&O!!! I'm still me, though BabyScout has grown into ToddlerScout (TS for short).

<<Hands Serp a brew and offers a hand to hold if she'd like>>

<<Wonders what's in a Full Irish Breakfast>>

I found some fun rubber duck mirrors but one of the sizes is 2cm by 2cm. Really?!

UniS Thu 16-Jun-11 19:31:03

Quite a small rubber duck then Scout.

Yeah, what is the difference between a full English and full Irish breakfast? is it just which country teh eggs and sausages come from?

MaryBS Thu 16-Jun-11 19:33:00

I'm still me as well, the only difference is that I'm drinking guinness!
