Weekending

Couldn't sleep last night! Tossed and turned and then finally got up at 7 this morning..... I'd promised my sister yesterday that I'd make some scones for her and her helpers, they're busy all weekend making 16 gingerbread men costumes for the Lyric Theatre. Eating scones = increased productivity! I was the earlybird in the supermarket at 8.30am, making a fool of myself trying to work the self scanners and taking forever ( I HATE THOSE THINGS...RANT OVER!!) and then home to bake!  I made cherry ones and cinnamon and raisin ones YUM! and the house smells lovely now. Happy weekends everyone x
