Oxford & The Ashmolean

So, how amazing is this weather right?! It fills my heart with joy.

On Sunday I travelled with my sister to Evesham to pick up two tickets for the Arctic Monkeys gig at Finsbury Park which will be on Friday. The tickets were a surprise for my boy's birthday earlier this month. The weather was absolutely perfect for driving through the Cotswolds, so we took the opportunity to stop in Oxford on the way back, where my parents met us, and we went for lunch then to the C├ęzanne and the Modern exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum.

The exhibition itself was wonderful, and really opened my eyes to the Impressionist movement in Europe in the late 19th century. I'd recommend a visit if you're in the area, and with our free, three-month art fund passes, we got our entry fees half price. Am I cultured or what?!

After the museum trip we had a walk round the city and found ourselves in The Fudge Kitchen, trying some free samples, needless to say I bought some Salted Caramel Fudge, as it tastes divine.

Despite growing up in the Home Counties, I don't think I'd ever been to Oxford, or at least couldn't remember doing so, but I absolutely loved it. I took some pictures of the amazing architecture you that the city is littered with. I'm not entirely happy with some of these photos but as long as I'm learning I don't mind.

If anyone has any recommendations for places to have lunch in Oxford, hit me up, I'm dying to go back to discover more of the history of Oxford and have a good nosey round all of the colleges.
