Sunday Sevens #95

Would you look at this! I’ve managed to get another seven photos this week for a Sunday Sevens blog. :-).

1. It seems like we are visiting our favorite breakfast place quite often now, which I don’t mind at all. It does make me laugh though that we have to specifically request some milk with our English Breakfast tea. The girls behind the counter think it’s quite odd every time we ask!
