Why I haven’t been posting videos. Life update.

Thank you for your kind words and support on my latest short video. For those that don’t use the community tab on YouTube (where I post short, written updates) I thought it would be good just to let anyone who is kind enough to pop on and watch my videos why it will be another 2 weeks before I post another video.

My next weigh-in at the doctor’s surgery is June 9th which is weigh-in day at home too so that seems a good time to try and spend time editing a longer video and uploading it.

Much love, C xxxxx

Happy Coronation Day and here is a delicious WW2 fruit scone recipe for the occasion!

I hope you are having a wonderful Coronation Day and enjoying some feasting! I had two large scones for my lunch which I made from a WW2 recipe and the rations I had and thoroughly enjoyed these. They were delicious!

Coronation Day Fruit Scones

  • 16 oz of self-raising flour (or plain flour and 2 heaped teaspoons of baking powder)
  • 2-4 oz butter or margarine (I used 3 oz of vegan butter)
  • 2 oz sugar
  • 1/4 pint of milk (I used oat milk)
  • 2-3 oz of sultanas or dried mixed fruit
  • pinch of salt


  1. Sieve the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar (or add the sugar after sieving)
  2. Add small lumps of the butter/margarine and rub in with fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs
  3. Add the milk and mix until a stiff dough is achieved
  4. Roll out to 1 inch thick and use cutters (I used 3.5 inch cutters which made 8 scones)
  5. Wash with milk or egg
  6. Cook in over at 180C for 20-30 mins until cooked.
  7. Allow to cool before serving
