Tea Time is Sister Time

Another little post to show you the outfit I wore while my sister was back in the Shire for our Mum's graduation. She came over to Lincoln and I took her to all the best places for a nice cuppa. I know where to go for a reasonably priced brew since I have have an issue with paying over the odds for hot water and a teabag. Proper brewed tea in china is a different kettle of... tea though. I also like going to the more independant cafes around town.
First stop was the Museum of Lincolnshire Life where we got a pot of tea for 80p. Yes, you heard! I love the museum and have blogged about it in the past here.
We went shopping a bit and then headed over to the Drill Hall which is a great venue and theatre which has a bar with yet again reasonable tea prices! We had a cuppa and cake, which was homemade banana cake with vanilla frosting, for £2.50 each. You can't get better than that in your over priced high street coffee shop company. I have visited the Drill Hall a number of times for performances (some free!) and events I have attended through work and I can't stop singing their praises. 
Since I tend be a bit more noticeable in what I wear than some people I have always felt kind of at home in places like these. I think it's partly to do with the surroundings and mainly to do with the friendly, welcoming staff.

80p bargain! I too begrudge paying over the odds for hot water and a tea bag, especially when you know they're giving you sh*tty Tetley.

Oh yeah! Or PG tits. They must make so much money on a mark up like that. Maybe I'm in the wrong business!
