I made scones recently and they actually turned out to be pretty good, not my Grandma's but there is hope that I may master it yet!, scones and tea are a match made in heaven especially when they are warm with Jam and a cup of tea. So why not treat yourself this weekend to a British afternoon tea, pull up a chair for a natter with me!
