No - it doesn't have anything to do with me attacking Anne. We cooled our heals this morning - just having breakfast in the Dial House Hotel, a walk through Bourton-on-the-Water (I discovered that there is also a Bourton-on-the-Hill this afternoon), and having a late morning tea. I took some good photos of Bourton and the pick of these is here …

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.
