About

‘an 18 year old finding little ways to deal with her mother’s terminal cancer. Scones, for example.’ was my original blog description. It was set up to map my journey into an unknown world of cancer, to serve as a sort of photographic and foodie journal.

Mum passed away in April, 2015. ‘a scone at a time’ is now my way of navigating a new way without her. It’s all about little things in life- wanders, scones, thoughts and coffee cups, and making the most of the everyday.

  1. Hi, I found your lovely blog as I think you liked one of my photos on Instagram at the weekend. (We had a Macmillan tea party in my local village hall, lots of cake!!)
    My mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when I was in my final year uni in Bristol. And my father fought and won against cancer 5 years ago… I’m now a mum with 2 daughters, with incredible memories of my mother ..

    There’s no nice way to describe cancer and what it puts us all through, it’s shit!! Stay strong, enjoy your time with family and look after yourself..

    Sounds funny but if you ever wanted to chat just drop me an email please do. It’s good to talk

    All the best

    1. Hi Eleanor,
      Thank you so much for your amazing message! You are so kind, and your words mean so much. Shit is the best possible description of cancer I can think of. I’ve been so overwhelmed by the response I’ve got since making the blog public, thank you so much for your kind offer and lovely words.

  2. I know this is only a little comment on just another day….. But thank you for the hope you show, your commitment and your love. You should be very proud of everything you have achieved. Keep on inspiring all who pass your way….. And reporting on all those yummy dished! 🙂

  3. Hello,

    I just lost my mum to Cancer. I understand how scary this journey is for you right now but I think you are doing something very healthy about coping with the situation. I have enjoyed reading your blog and the photos look yummy. Your should be proud of yourself because not only are you coping but you are showing other people in that situation that there is still light in the dark xx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, I can’t tell you how much they mean. I truly don’t know what I would do without being able to cook! It has made everything just a little better.

  4. Just found your lovely blog and I love your insta page. I’m so terribly sorry to hear about your mum. I can’t even begin the imagine how you all must be feeling but I admire you for trying to find ways to cope. My mother has suffered from cancer 4 times and is currently going through a bone marrow transplant. I may not understand what you are going through on a personal level but I understand (to a point) how
    hideous cancer is.
    God bless and I look forward to your posts x x

  5. Hi. Sorry to hear about your mom. Mine battled uterine cancer and breast cancer but she’s doing ok but I lost my sister last year to cervical cancer. I’m glad you’re working on this blog and using it as an outlet. I wish I could send you a lot of scones. Please let me know if you need anything.

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely words. I’m so sorry to hear about your sister, there are too many tragedies at the hands of cancer, I wish there was more than this blog that I could do. Sending you hugs 🙂

  6. Hi dear, I know what you are going through. My dad had cancer too and I was only 16-17. There isn’t much you can do, I know. I would say just nourish your daily gratefulness, which is something I wish someone would have told me at the time. Stay strong, I know you can do it 🙂 Sending good vibes to you on this Winter day ❤ you're not alone.
