They are the very easy ones that are made with 4 cups of self raising flour, 300 mls of cream and a small can of lemonade. I didn't have any dates so I had to make do with some cranberries and raz cherries, but they are equally good with cheese, if you wanted a savoury scone mix. Bake at 200 for about 20 mins and there you have it.
I love a trip to Wellington and it will bring back memories of E's first couple of years there, when both her parents were at university and coping with study, classes, and a rather gorgeous infant with huge blue eyes
I didn't have a very good camera in those days, but even with a dodgy digital she is still very cute.
