To jam or not to jam

Hello Hello Silverites

It is Sunday afternoon here and I just finished a spot of afternoon tea!

I was doing an online grocery shop on Friday and proceeded to the checkout. I am not sure about your online grocery stores but here they don't let you check out without showing you more of your favourite items. Hit checkout and then another page of items that I might have missed pop up. Hit checkout again and then they show items they think you might like!

Well this time I saw clotted cream on sale. It took me back to when I worked in London. I would fly back home to Scotland on Friday afternoon on British Airways. Those were the days when you got decent food on planes. The afternoon flight was always my favourite as you were given afternoon tea. It would usually consist of prawn sandwiches, along with a scone, a little tub of clotted cream and a little glass jar of strawberry jam.

It was absolutely delicious!

So back to my grocery shop, they were having a bundle deal where you got four scones and some clotted cream and a jar of strawberry conserve all for £4, an absolute bargain!

That was what was delivered yesterday. I will not lie I am a clotted cream addict and could eat it on its own. When I went to Cornwall on holiday, I think I was eating it morning noon and night. Classic cornish clotted cream, you really can't beat it.

So I was on Hive earlier, answering some messages and generally engaging with my Twengers.

One of these was Super Eli @coquicoin and I was saying how I was going to have some scones and clotted cream soon.

And do you know what she said?

And I know naughty Super Ed loves to tempt me, a rascal is always a rascal 😉😆😄

Well I admit that I am guilty as charged, but then she sent this gif!

You are so naughty cat.gif

I am of the opinion that if you get called something then you may as well own it! Right?

To jam or not to jam?

If you eat scones with clotted cream, do you eat them with or without jam?

Normally for me, I will omit the jam as I am a raspberry fanatic, so not that bothered if I have strawberry jam or not. However on tasting this jam, it was a case of jam on today.

So all you scone and clotted cream and strawberry jam fans, please tuck in😁

IMG_20220724_144346_340.jpg

PS Super Eli, they really were delicious🤣

Since I started this post, I ended cooking and eating dinner. Being Sunday it was a roast and today was roast chicken.

It has been a quiet week on Hive for me, so I will be lucky to finish in the top ten of the Hive Engagement League, so no chicken dinner there, so this one will have to do!

IMG_20220724_174223_892.jpg

No gravy today as I am on Frank's red hot sauce kick!

So there we have it, how an online grocery shop took me down memory lane of working in London years ago. It is funny how things jump into your mind frome seemingly nowhere!

Well at least we can remember things, that is a good thing and I will take that!

Thank you for popping today, I hope that you took a scone, they are FREE!

Monday is a new week, let's have an awesome last week of July, and get ready for #hivePUD

Haha, Super Ed!!! you are so crazy 🤣🤣 For me with jam definitely and I am waiting for my Free scone 😂😂.

Remembering things especially when they are pleasant is like reliving them in our memory, and it's nice, don't you think?

And well, the rascal with this post is simply telling me

jeje I thought that would make you laugh Super Eli!
I think Fiona or Lizzie need to make us some, but on the list it goes!

I absolutely think reliving good memories is fantastic.

jeje so I have progressed from naughty to Very naughty:)

Thank you Super Eli for being you and have a wonderful rest of Sunday😁

Thanks to you, Super Ed! For being you and always making me laugh 💙 I guess you don't need to try too hard to do that 😂😂

We can create a Traviesómetro, LOL I don't know how to say it in English, to measure your degree of naughtiness 🤣🤣

And it would be great to be able to eat one of those scones with lots of cream and one of those jams that Fiona makes 😋😋

Have a great day when you wake up, Super Ed! 🤗

Hello hello, Super Ed, let's hope the weather improves during the week.
Lately, me clearing notifications is a hopeless case, I still have some from a couple of days ago, and this week it could be worse 🙃 so I'll do what I can

oh my degree of naughtiness is high today Super Eli so beware 🤣🤣🤣

Morning morning Super Ed! ☀️☕️😎

I hope the weather is better today and that you will be able to take some good pictures on your visit to the other town.

And guess what? yesterday, I was more naughty than you hehe. With the rise of Hive price, the starbits were cheaper and my buying order was executed. And I already requested the card, jaja. So now let's see ;)

Have a terrific Tuesday!!

Good afternoon Super Eli!
Ah the weather, well it was gorgeous this morning so went to the park at 7 to get some shots for Ageese and a story.
Came home and had breakfast, then got grey and my back was playing up big time, which means a change in weather coming. So I will go tomorrow!

jaja you are so funny, so you did it woohoo, or rather it was automatic. well done!
CJ will be next, I saw in the server that hoosie got his card today so I think I might be in three days...
Have a terrific Tuesday too:)

Hi Super Ed!!! Cool that the day was beautiful and you were able to go to the park, but too bad your back is bothering you. I hope you feel better soon. By the way, I haven't asked you lately how the weekly injections are going, are you still getting them?

Well, I had placed some orders in those days when you became Mr. Impatient 🤣 And yesterday, with the Hive rise, the price of the starbits went down, and they were executed. And I had what was required to make the request for the card. Cj will be next for sure, hehe

Have a good evening and no back pain 🤞🤗

Well the day was only beautiful until 10am haha BUT I got the pictures I wanted which was the most important thing.
I will leave first thing tomorrow and go to the town along the coast where I used to live to get some medications, with the pandemic that is still where my doctor is.

The injections stopped now, not doing any good at all.

Ah yes you have Hive, so when you place orders you have swap.hive to cover it? OR can you place even if you don't have and the order just gets cancelled?
Yes she will be!
Fantastic news though, and I hope you are having a good day Super Eli

Oh well, I'm sorry that the beautiful day was so short. And you have to go to the other town just for the medicines? Can't you get them in any pharmacy? Well, the truth is that it's lucky the health system you have. Here, public health is pretty pitiful, and private insurance is getting more expensive every day.

It's a pity that the injection didn't work. I hope tomorrow goes well and that the good weather is with you.

The orders are placed with swap.hive, and they block it like any other exchange when you place a limit order. I use Tribaldex. Now, I have to place some to acquire some LEOs as I don't think I will generate much otherwise for the August LPUD.

Happy evening, Super Ed:)

Well the thing is, the doctor sends the prescription to your local pharmacy at the registered address, so even though that pharmacy is part of a chain and there are two here, they will not let you collect the medicnes from another pharmacy in the chain. So until there is space in the closest doctors practice here, I keep the doctor there as it is easier to get to, just a simple bus trip and the bus stop is only four minutes walk away. Getting to the other doctors here is more complicated!
Well I hope to stop back at another town that has a small harbour which I have not been to, the sun is shining and I will leave in an hour.
As for the NHS our health system, well it really is amazing, I don't care about the moaners here, it is amazing overall!
Ah yes LEO I am well well short this month, I will be lucky to have 20 before LPUD! I need to see about getting some too for lpud. #thestruggleisreal Super Eli

Well then if it's easier and so close by bus, then it's a good excuse for a wee trip.

The Leo issue needs to be addressed. I will buy them this month, but IMHO we need to find a way to generate them and not have to be investing Hive in them.

Yes there is a doctor's surgery right beside the busstop that Mrs T gets off from work and it would be perfect only a ten minute walk, but they were not accepting new patients during covid. Now that I have prescription filled again, I shall try to register at that doctors again and hope they have a space, well 2!

The Leo issue needs to be addressed. I will buy them this month, but IMHO we need to find a way to generate them and not have to be investing Hive in them.

Yes Yes Yes and partly a reason why I said using starbits for something else. We do need to generate ways to get LEO without using our Hive....

Let's get our thinking caps on Savers partner;)

Hopefully, you can soon find the 2 places for that doctor that is so convenient for you.

But the thing is that starbits are so cheap right now that we have to generate a lot to do anything with them.
And yes, we have to think of a strategy. Thinking caps on, saver partner! :)

The thing is that you like being naughty, but naughty when it come to food, is not really naughty. Enjoy those scones, haha ( I’ve got an awesome scone recipe for you if you ask nicely, haha)
I’m addicted to Mascarpone cheese, which may as well be cream, but, obviously, an elevated version. ❤️🤗💕
We did tacos with all the trimmings and Mascarpone, it was sublime - not scones, I know, but still.
Great to see someone who loves food and can cook! GFU❤️🤗💕💕🤗🤗❤️

hehe agreed and yes I like that for food naughty is not naughty, but nowadays I think naughty is not really that negative a thing (he says smiling)
Oh I shall have to get my nicely asking mode ready .... That sounds yummy, home baked really do rock over store bought!
ah Mascarpone cheese now that is something that I have not had for ages! Oh with tacos, darn that would be seriously tasty.
Oh I love food and love to cook, but baking has never been my strong point, probably because I never really do it apart from the odd courgette (zucchini bread)😁

Jam is a definite, clotted cream a naughty luxury but definitely on my shopping list for a premeditated afternoon tea & scones! Excuse the term but we've been binge-watching a Stephen King crime series this weekend...
My online store has not learnt that trick yet & I hope they don't, as I cannot keep my hands off those tempting snacky and chocolaty stuff they display as I stand waiting in the queue!
I'll happily skip the gravy for hot sauce.
PS Your fault if I end up making scones tomorrow AND have it with all the trimmings 😉

hehe funnily enough, I said to Eli that we should get you or Fiona to make us some 🤣🤣🤣
You are lucky with your online store, it is quite annoying at time, sometimes it is hand as I forget things, but when you are in a hurry it is a pain in the bum!
Which Stephen King.
As for the gravy and hot sauce, I like both, but was too lazy to make the gravy today hehe
Now I want to see some scones with all the trimmings tomorrow:)

On Cortisone now. Bizarre few days!

Head to knees hives. 😆

Had jam on toast last night. I blame you.

I think it was the Doom. And not the game or my jadedness with the world at large kinda doom.

An local store bought insect repellent.

Long story. Long week!

Still super tired so resting. But hopefully a funny story should come out of it over the weekend. At least I'll have that!

p.s. The jam was delicious. Good idea!

Doom yep I thought of the game straightaway.

hmm well the Doom is to fight the insects not be ingested by you...

You can't beat toast and jam when you are poorly!

It's a looong time since I had scones and cream... and strawberry jam... Now, in thia country, that really is a rarity. As is raspberry. I can't remember ever eating the latter. My mum raved about it. It would have been her choice, too!
