Twinings . . . my everyday black English tea.
Walkers’ shortbread cookies, my weekly biscuit nibble with my afternoon tea.
Pottering in the garden with my pups curiously wandering amongst the plants, a Sussex trug usually slung over my forearm.
Settling in for an evening of watching an episode of Midsomer Murders or [insert your favorite British telly program here].
Add a grey, rainy day and yep, my definition of British-inspired living wherever I may find myself has been fulfilled and delighted in its opportunity to experience.
Currently, for the past 14+ months, I’ve been in Bend, Oregon, but much of my company during my days at home has been quite regularly the list of British pleasures listed above.
It seems hard to believe a year has passed since TSLL’s 2nd Annual British Week (catch up on all that was shared and given away here), but it has and giddily, I cannot wait to slip away to Britain with you all beginning today as the 3rd Annual British Week gets under way.
We have quite the week of celebrating in store, as some of the items and posts I will be sharing were planned for last year, but due to delivery times, delays, etc., they never made it in time for 2020’s British Week, which means this year’s annual event will be all the more full of British treats, British brands, and British favorites.
If you are new to TSLL’s annual themed weeks (the blog hosts two each year – British Week and French Week), you are in for a wonderful week of all things British and British-inspired. I do hope you enjoy.
Without further delay, let’s dive in to the first post of the week which is the first giveaway and begin savoring all things British!
I don’t know about you, but I thoroughly love flipping through a favorite magazine at the end of a long day full of productivity when my feet just need a rest and my mind as well. I sink into my cozy armchair with Norman or Oscar (sometimes both if they want to) snuggled up beside me, sip a hot cuppa tea as I peruse the contents and never fail to find oodles of inspiration for my home, garden and everyday life. Two of my favorite magazines are British-made and printed: The English Home and Gardeners’ World, and as a way to welcome everyday pleasures into your monthly routine, I am gifting TWO lucky readers with a year’s subscription of their magazine of choice. (The English Home at a value of $29.95 for 6 issues OR Gardeners’ World at a value of $115 (US) for 12 issues).
