July’s Project goes from strength to strength. Today: Scones.

It would seem that I have become a magical being, Harry Potter stand aside, David Copperfield make some room, I can now turn this…

Into this…

These Scones with added cranberries went down a storm. Even my nephew said, “They’re well nice!”. This is the same nephew who was called, “Well hot!”, when he attended a middle school in Whitby during his work experience…

Today was spent, in the sun, eating said scones and guzzling glasses of wine…

Lovely jubbly!


Juneathon Day 8

A busy day today saw the first real threat to Juneathon. To begin the day we had a long drive up north to return the dog we’ve been looking after. Followed by a visit to, Kath, the sister-in-law for some dinner. She served up a Spaghetti Bolognese that wouldn’t have been out of place in a Michelin Star restaurant.

Whilst there we watched the first game of Euro 2012. Nephew Jason was also at home, attempting to complete his History homework. However, I’m slightly concerned that it won’t be his best piece of work due to the fact that he was watching the footy and tweeting.

This all meant a late run, the first of the month, I’d rather not run in the evening, but needs must. Just a short run around town was the plan. It was incredibly windy tonight, like a scene from The Wizard of Oz.

Although I did manage to avoid the flying cows. Tonight’s run was 3.43 miles. A pretty uneventful run, but then again I didn’t have my contacts in, plus it was dark, so pretty much anything could have happened and I wouldn’t have noticed.

Total Juneathon mileage after day 8 = 31.38

Interestings things seen = 0
