Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four




Dance as though no one is watching
Love as though you've never been hurt
Sing as though no one can hear you
Live as though heaven is on earth

My darlings
Dance
Sing
Love
Live
As though it's the weekend
Oh! Wait it is the weekend!!
Have a lovely one then
