Blueberry and lemonade scones.

About a month ago when an old friend of mine was visiting, we invented a game where we would rate everything we did in life as either 'winning' or 'loosing'. I would come home from a long day at work, tired and grumpy and call out "Loosing" as I walked in the door, or when something wonderful would happen yell "Winning." After he left this habit carried on into my everyday life. Some days I just want to scream "Loosing" all day. At the moment I have been studying business at pastry school, and I'm quickly learning that math isn't exactly 'my thing.' You know your'e loosing at a course when your cooking partner (who cant even speak english) is trying to help you pass on a test.

Loosing, loosing, loosing. At times, thats all its felt like for the past few months. Today however, was defiantly a winning day. Despite sleeping through my alarm, nearly missing my test, possibly failing my test, and having no time to do my laundry...........I still felt like I won today. Despite everything that went wrong, a lot went right. All of the things I know I should care about fell through, like doing well at a test. All the things I truly care about however went incredibly well. Let me explain.....

I hate waking up late. Its enough to throw my whole day into chaos. When it (very very rarely) happens, I usually run out of the house, stressed and worried, feeling awful that I have let myself sleep in. I run around like a chicken without a head, not having time to buy a coffee and then suffering from caffeine withdrawal all day. Today however, when I woke up, I simply got on with my day. I made breakfast, bought my coffee, and arrived at school late. I proceeded to just get on with my day.

After school finished I went home, baked scones, and went to a sewing group. It was so lovely to just unwind, do some craft, and meet some new people. So today I made three new friends, bakes some treats, and I think this is really what makes us win at life.

So if your wanting to win......bake these blueberry lemonade scones. They are super easy and delicious!
