with jam and cream...

Every year,
on a weekend late in August,
The Old Convent* Annual Scone Competition
is held at my folks' place.

It’s a serious event.
Secret recipes.
Blind judging.
Grand prizes.
Bribery & corruption.

As the inaugural champion
(some years ago now)
I’m in serious training
to take the title back.

* My Mum and Dad live in building that was once a convent.
It's a wonderful rambling old place,
complete with a church and priest's cottage.

  1. Chief scone maker. Not a title to be sneered at. That's some serious 'lightweight' scone bout you've got on your hands.

  2. Yum! They do look good. Scones are always a bit of a challenge for me, but I must say, I think I made my best yet yesterday! What's your secret to a good scone...though I understand if you'd like to keep it to yourself, that's one serious competition you've got on your hands...
