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.

That was it for our stay in Oxford. I loved every second of it, minus the rain. We hopped on the bus and headed back to the car. We decided we had more time and there wasnt much to do back in Chipping Camden so we thought we would drive ...
... I doubt they'd enjoy it, but they could do it! I got really lucky in the people I was able to work with this summer.
After lunch Natalie and I wandered around Turl Street and the covered market looking for a Prince Harry mask for Larry. We wanted to give him something to remember our silly night with the Prince Harry girl in the window who scared us. We did finally find one in the covered market, and I wrote him a little note on the back of the ...
... a few attemps before steering us into the bank and under overhanging trees which threatened to push us all over board. Phil acted as official photographer, cheerleader and occasion oarsman. Drifting through town in the afternoon sun was quite lovely, the only thing missing was a straw hat and white linen suit.
We followed with Atomic Burgers and Jamaican Ginger Beer, drinks with her bro and his wife and a stop off in a street where an episode of Midsummer Murders ...

It's a bit hard to describe Oxford. Yes, it's a group of 39 residential colleges interspersed with university faculty buildings, but they are not like Australian universities. All of them are hundreds of years old, and almost nothing is modern. The best I can describe it is to say that, in Melbourne terms, it's like having 39 Scotch Colleges all next to each other, and you can't walk on the grass in any of them.
... at it again it was all red and there were white like spots forming all over where my palm had touched. I shrugged it off as there's nothing I can do and whatever it was it wasn't going to kill me so just suck it up and deal. It pretty much felt like holding a lighter to your hand continuously. After talking about it a bit Aimee and Scott pointed out that it probably wasn't Poison Ivy as that would be itchy and not burning. Later that night ...
