But whatever it may be, you should take out some time from your busy schedule every now and then and relish the simple things in life.

Freshly baked scones- It is not a big sin to fill your house with the scent of freshly baked scones that are simply too yummy to resist. And if you can serve them warm with a delicious spread of cream and jam, your children are simply going to love them.
