Janet’s Notebook has linked a global enterprise and an outstanding children oncology ward in Southampton General Hospital. I’m very honoured to have connected the two through blogging. I’m very touched by the generosity of Ahmad Tea of London. I thank WordPress for this wonderful platform.

I made these gorgeous teabag holders. In both pockets, Ben placed 2 packets of Ahmad Tea.
