🍰🍔🌿 It's been a while since I tried a new High Tea spot in Joburg and had a wonderful afternoon yesterday @just___teddy with the best company 💕 The table was beautifully laid out when we got there, and love the effort that went into everything like the teapot, stands and menus ☕️ It was three years in the making and it just shows! According to owner Teddy Zaki, we were the first guests to book the high tea, and judging from passerby looks and comments, it was impressive from the outside, too. I opted for the choice of 24k gold beef slider, because I just *had* to try it once ✨ However, I didn’t receive salmon or chicken options as per the menu sent to us after booking, but was offered some veg options. A new addition was Middle Eastern bites, which more than made up for the menu change 😋 After the initial sweet and savoury we were served in our stands, it was followed by the cheese & onion tart and a savoury macaron (pea flavour). There were loads of sweet selections and I loved the madeleines but didn't have place to try the scones! 🍰 If you opt for the vegetarian, you will get full. The High Tea is R250 per person and is by far the best value you will find in Joburg today + great service. I cannot recommend it enough. PS, we've been to @just___teddy 's high tea @1foxprecinct and this is basically the upgrade ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (PPS Teddy's meat supplies are halaal and there's no bacon on the menu if you're worried about contamination).
I only need glasses for reading and close work and for years struggled with the frustrations that come with putting reading glasses on, taking them off, losing them, sitting on them, not being able to find them...
I am happy to say that life is much easier these days...
~ Reading glasses for when I am in one place reading/sewing etc.
~ These multi-focals for when I am on the move but still need to be able to read and see some detail at close quarters. (The top of these lenses have no script so I can wear them when I'm driving.)
~ A single contact lens worn in one eye when I need to see things close and can't have my distance vision compromised.... and don't feel like wearing glasses. (How clever is that though!)
~ A (modern) lorgnette worn around my neck through which I can peer to read the odd thing. (I like wearing this to events such as art exhibitions to add a bit of interest and slight eccentricity to my outfit.)
Have you found your solution yet?
Thank you Kim and Alon @blubirdoptical fo your help and advice with this journey and for allowing me to try on every pair of vaguely catseye-shaped glasses that you get in store 🤷♀️🙈
