Day 16 – In August last year I began a 40B440 List – 40 things I wanted to achieve before my 40th Birthday. One of these was to try something new for every Sunday in January. I had never made scones in my 39years on this wonderful planet! So when my nana requested some this weekend it was a perfect opportunity. My first cheese scones were a hit! Thanks for the lemondade tip from one of my LeapStars Hope and my husband Riwai was amazed that in nearly 10 years of knowing me I have never made scones! Nom Nom Nom.
