recipe for a perfect Friday

Take one spouse. Saunter across Sheeps Green (or is it Coe Fen)*? en route



for a tasty treat. Then wander back across the fen
and head for another treat!

Return home and spend weekend enjoying the treasures inside the yellow paper bag**...

* never have worked out which is which. I'm pretty convinced that the bit between the two mill ponds (the one near the Grad Pad and the one near the Granta) is Sheep's Green, but Graham always calls it Coe Fen, which I think is the strip of land behind the Fitzwilliam. Anyone willing to be ref?

** note crumpled appearance of bag, our cat fell in love with Edward Bawden's cat logo, and sat on the bag all evening!

I fear Graham may be right and Sheep's Green is the more scrubby stuff later on...

Aha! Thanks for the link, Liz. Judging by the picture with Bella Pasta (described as Sheep's Green) in it 'tis I as is right and Graham as is wrong. The footbridge which is submerged in that picture is going to be closed for repairs for a couple of weeks soon: very bouncy it is, too, at the moment, so repairs are a good idea!

But what was in the bag?!
