I'm back home.
Back at the nest where other than lots of kisses and cuddles also a lot of chickenpox awaited me.
It's awful to see him like this!
I'll just quickly say how I spent my two last days in Oxford.
On Friday we went shopping, had tea with Laura's friends and had an -again- lovely dinner at The Nosebag. After that we went back to Laura's room and watched Monty Python.
On Saturday we started of having lunch with Laura's friend and then went to the Pitt Rivers Museum, which turned out to be a very special place. It's an anthropological museum and has cabinets completely stuffed with curiosities. When you enter the museum you can ask for a spyglass and torch, which you might want to use to read the hand-scribbled tags attached to most items; those tags alone were wonderful enough to be exhibited!
If you're ever in Oxford make sure you visit this museum; it's absolutely worth it!
(and it's even free! Isn't it fantastic that all museums in Britain are free?!)
And guess what I bought in the museum-shop?! Fabric!
I didn't expect to find any affordable fabric anymore, but suddenly it was there. Why I don't know... it just said made in India.
There are 45 blocks of different fabrics, ready to be used and it cost only 3 pounds!
My favourite are these cute elephants.
We then went to Jericho, visited some more charity-shops (expensive!), bought some presents for the children and then went home and had pizza.
Yesterday morning I had to leave early to catch the bus to Victoria, missed it, caught the next one. Took the bus to Stansted and then the plane to Amsterdam. After 45 minutes on the train and a short ride in the car, I had used almost all forms of transportation in one day. But I made it home alright!
What was waiting for me was a little present from Joanne from Stardustshoes. It's lovely and beautifully made. If you want to make one for yourself look here!
