Five good things about today

  1. My son and his wife and their dog are here for the weekend.  We haven't seen them since before Christmas as they are newly qualified doctors (not the dog obviously, she has been qualified for years) and are working very hard.
  2. My crocuses are out by the drive, in shades of purple and lilac with here and there a shining shot of pale yellow.
  3. I made some of the best cheese scones ever for tea.
  4. I ate three.
  5. I have no time to blog because I need to go and talk to my family.
Bliss.

  10. Bother. You've brought me out in guilt. Didcott said twice, this morning (rather whistfully) how much he'd like cheese scones today . . . but I forgot.

  16. Cheese scones are the edible equivalent of Desert Island Discs - and I'd give up everything else for them. Your restraint was admirable.

  17. Sounds perfect - fraught weekend here, K is at the hospital in Poole.

    Your cheese scones are delicious, if I close my eyes I can still taste them!

    Hope the rest of the weekend is as restful and happy xx

  25. I absolutely love cheese scones. Now you've whet my appetite I've gotta go and make some (and probably eat them all too). Drat!

  26. You didn't ask but here are my five happy things about today:
    1. I got my hair cut off and I love it.
    2. Colin Firth's Oscar.
    3. All the buds pushing up out of the earth and the plants considering blooming, on my long walks.
    4. I no longer do the book-keeping at work. Yippee!
    5. I know what we're having for tea.
