Off across the border into.......

Cambridgeshire!

We just went for a spot of shopping, and because I really wanted Picklesdad to see the groovy hand-driers in John Lewis toilets! Yes I know, slightly strange and a little sad but they are so cool! They are Dyson Airblade Hand dryers, and dry your hands in seconds!
Unfortunately the toilets were so crowded I was unable to get a photo of them but trust me they are worth the trip to Cambridge alone.

We parked in the Newmarket Road Park and Ride facility (take note Bury Planners) and went into the heart of Cambridge itself.

Strangely for the end of March it appeared to be Graduation day at Kings College, as Picklessister pointed out 'There are a lot of wizards here today'. Nice way of seeing their poncy gowns I thought!

Whilst Picklesdad spent AGES in a camera shop, us girls ventured along Kings Parade until we found Jim Garrahy's Fudge Kitchen and were able to watch fudge being made.




The fudge mixture had to reach 231 degrees...



being stirred constantly with big wooden paddle....



and then poured onto a marble table to cool.

We didn't have time to see the next phase but once cooled it is rolled and sliced for serving.
YUM!

I really have to go back to John Lewis, you were talking about those toilets when we met you in Cambridge before Christmas. Do they have them in the mens too or are you going to have to sneak PD into the ladies? We might be going to Bluewater tomorrow-I'll have to check out JL there.
