This week I'm grateful for.... Lego... & scones.

I'm a little late to being grateful this week.  With blogger down, in-laws visiting for a couple of nights, a toothache that's been hanging round for over a week and general life busy-ness, I have hardly had time to get near the computer! 

Today, we had an inside day, foisted upon us by icky Melbourne weather and me in dire need of a trackpant day.  So this week I am grateful to whom ever invented Lego!  Oscar is old enough now to be able to follow the maps himself and was entertained for most of the day putting together a log cabin and then adding to his 'town'.  He must have been feeling particularly generous as well because he let his 4 year old brother join in for most of it!



And feeling grateful for scones, well who wouldn't.  Jam (today my mum's homemade quince jelly!!!), cream, warm scone-y goodness and a cup of tea.  Do you think I could eat these on a daily basis and not end up at 300kg?  I follow the scone recipe of 3 cups of SR flour, 1 cup of lemonade and 1 cup of cream.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

  2. So sorry - but I'm from England and not at all good at cooking, so I need exact ingredients and cooking time etc! Is it single cream or double cream (eg pouring or dollupping!) thanks - Debs
