Tea cups and the Oxford Bake Off

As I write, I am travelling to Oxford, by train, for the Oxford Bake Off. I and a fellow judge will have the pleasure of tasting 31 loaf cakes. I decided to treat myself to a first class ticket, as it’s the weekend it was much cheaper, and even better still on a senior rail card. However, I’m on a 3 and half journey and I doubt I will get a complementary cup of tea, on the plus side I have free WiFi enabling me to write this post. I stand corrected, I’ve just been asked if I want a cup of tea. I feel very happy now, alas it does not appear to be my favourite brew, but it’s a cuppa.

If you read my last post you will no doubt have read about all the many things I want to share with you, but fail to have the time to write them. Hopefully by the time I reach Oxford I will at least have written something.

Daylight is just teetering over the horizon and although it could be a little cloudy it’s warm and I’m looking forward to a fun day ahead.

Last week I received the most beautiful tea cup from Alison Appleton Ceramics as a thank you for some Q&A about me, tea and cake.

It’s now become my favourite cup because of its robustness and high capacity to take on lots of tea in one go. Do you have a favourite cup?

Ooo I’ve just passed nearly 2 doz swans on the canal as the train passes by. They looked beautiful and serene.

I’m on a Cross Country train, travelling an unfamiliar route which should make my journey interesting now that daylight has appeared. I’ll report back on how the judging went.

Tomorrow I’m off to a CCC event in Guiseley Leeds, more cake 😉

Hope you have a great weekend.
