Whilst on my Grand UK Tour, I will sign three very special items for Orbit to give away as prizes. The first prize is this darling teapot, and the two runner-up prizes are these twee tea strainers (all from Oliver Bonas.)
To enter is take a photo of yourself with a parasol or umbrella in a darling pose and email to [email protected].
This is a worldwide competition, and they will be posting entries on their site. I will choose the winner and runners-up at the end of my Grand UK Tour on 13 April. See terms and conditions here.
And to show you just how easy it is, here are Orbiteers Anna Gregson, Emily Rowland, and Rose Tremlett with a shining example (and no fear, they have excluded themselves from winning):
Best of British, and the Empire salutes you!
GAIL’S DAILY DOSE
Your Moment of Parasol . . .
Your Infusion of Cute . . .
Your Writerly Tinctures . . .
Cracked tea mug. Have you ever seen a sadder thing?
Quote of the Day:
“The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books.”
