    It's a minor miracle if there are any left by bedtime. Extra mature cheddar ones inhaled by my fellow residents today as I had the veg on for bread and roasting a chicken. One egg makes six or seven good sized scones which is plenty when they should be eaten within a few hours to be at their best. You can freeze them and reheat but still not as nice.

    MrT have nice cherries for their FnV offer - £1.20 for 200g. Spanish red pacific - very good flavour and texture, I would buy again.

    mmmmm, cheese scones are one of the few things that make me curse having to avoid gluten.  There was a cafe where I used to live that put so much cheese on the top they basically would landside and ended up a messy pile of cheesy yum.

    At this time of year, I tend to split it between gardening first thing, then a breather, with housework after lunch when the UV levels are too high to work in the garden and then do a bit more late afternoon / evening, depending on who’s cooking! 😉

    There is an amazing Brazilian cheese muffin that is made with cassava so gluten free ! My neighbour keeps promising me she will show me how to make them - will report back - they are insanely good

    I am choosing to be fabulously frugal to support some wonderful life changing and affirming financial goals including buying a London home I love.

    DON'T BUY STUFF (from Frugalwoods)
    No seriously, just don’t buy things. 99% of our success with our savings rate is attributed to the fact that we don’t buy things. You can’t really hack your way to frugal. You can and should take advantage of discounts, coupons, rewards points, and the like. But at the end of the day, the only way to truly save money is to not buy stuff.    Money doesn’t walk out of your wallet on its own accord.

    I have done some tidying, and the place looks better for it.  The simple act of putting things away is a very lost art in this household!
