I've got some of the other Bluestockings coming over tomorrow for the annual yarn swap and wind-off so I had the perfect excuse to visit my favourite flower shop (this is where I got my wedding bouquet) for some delicious spring-time tulips.
These are adorable - can you see the pink stems at the top?
I love the Friday feeling you get from buying flowers at the weekend. I was very happy walking from the flower shop to the bus stop in the sunshine through one of the prettiest streets in Oxford. I wish I'd had my camera on my so I could show you a picture of all the differently painted houses with the sunlight and shadows on them.
Now I'm off to make lemon fairy cakes* and continue tidying for tomorrow.
Have a lovely weekend all of you!
* all my (four) cupcake recipe books refer to them as cupcakes but fairy cake is a much prettier term!
btw I've got one eye on MasterChef (still catching up from whilst I was away) and I'm going to have to rewind to check exactly which top London restaurant it is that's serving squirrel liver quenelles. I suppose it's one way to cut down on the greys in London's parks.
