I love this – cooking themed post-it notes that allow you to mark up your cookbooks, make shopping lists, menus and cooking to-do lists. In other words, a joy for the obsessive, analytical, list-scribbler of a cook. Also, I’m a sucker for pretty notebooks and stationery and this is really cute.

I found it in Comma, on the Iffley road (two down from the Magdalen Arms). It’s one of my favourite shops in Oxford and the source of one of my other most heart-gladdening finds, my ‘today is super’ notebook (which bears the following frighteningly enthusiastic legend along the spine: ‘I have lots to do. It’ll be fun. Let’s start now!’)
