Scones and Memories

sconeWhat do you do when you and the babe aren’t feeling quite up to par? When the big kids are climbing the walls and you really don’t want to send them back out to the mud pit that used to be your yard? Why, you ask your five year old if she wants to help you make some scones. Then what do you do when you can’t find your trusty scone recipe? You find a new one and hope it works out. What do you do when the new recipe is a complete flop? You slather it with extra jam and cream and eat them anyway. Then what? Well, you send the kids back out into the mud, after all that’s what is really important, right? Full bellies, play exhausted kids and happy memories.

    There’s always a debate in this house as to whether the jam goes on first or the cream. Mr Dancing does it the opposite way to me but I put it down to the fact that he’s from Somerset!
