The Manor certainly looks like a place for the upper crust. The waiter was dressed in a suit and we saw some of the guests playing croquet. A look at the menu showed it to be expensive but not as expensive as I thought it would be.
Housing approval in Lower Slaughter is controlled by the Parish Council and any buildings must be kept in period with the rest of the town. Although you can always tell the new ones because their stones are a lighter colour.
Upper Slaughter is a bit larger and has a meeting hall and a hotel. We saw a new title for a gardener in Upper Slaughter - Lawn Garden and Agricultural Mechanic. I think this is an up market name for Jim's Garden Services and I bet that means that they can charge more.

More later.... (now heading for dinner - or another pub... ;)
Dinner at "Ask" Italian restaurant was quite nice, just a simple wood-fired pizza and cabrese salad, but yummy, washed down with an Italian Shiraz. Back to the hotel and now to bed - tomorrow we rent a car and drive - "on the left" - :0 ...
Two weeks to go until I take the plunge Down Under for my six month expedition to Australia as a fully-fledged backpacker.
Feelings include a mixture of nerves, excitement and liberation. Mainly the latter. Putting off packing for a little while because i'll inevitably repack again and again. Wondering how much of a lobster I will be after ...
... meet every morning to speak and discuss their writings. It was a unique place because there were several rooms inside and each had its own name and theme. We got to eat in the Rabbit Room which is where the two men, amongst others, would meet and eat lunch. After out delicious lunch we headed out to walk around some more and strangly enough we turned one corner and the Seattle Seahawk's Cheerleaders were filing off of a bus all decked out ...
