Saturday morning breakfast was coffee and delicious scones from The Lonely Scone , a fab local company that also offer vegan, gluten free and diabetic friendly scones and are at the Glossop Farmers market each month.

I also got to meet one of my favourite bloggers - Jojo of Vegan in Brighton . We got to hang out a bit over the weekend, in V Revolution , at the after party and Jojo also came to Meat Free Monday .
