... us Emily's husbands , Sean's car. So there we were tootling up the A40 and then the M40 to Oxfordshire. we were doing well until we got a bit lost and ended up in Banbury. So at 10.30 we rang Caroline (Mandy's sister in law) and luckily we got back to Steeple Aston at about 11. So the day was car, ferry, car, plane, car. Absolutely shattered the next day but we are both in fine form now. Sitting out writing this blog in the garden and it is about 25 degrees. Perfect. We caught ...
... to cover all angles. Also a bite zapper from Amazon (stumbled on this but it has excellent reviews) and a ton of 100% DEET (its a repellent not an insecticide so I'm not worried about using it).
Hopefully this is the last time I'll need to think about insect bites. Incidentally when we had our last set of injections Izzy showed the nurse a particularly bad bite and was told it was from a false black widow spider, so weird bites happen even here!
... now the flights are paid for and I can't work out whether to feel excited or petrified. Maybe in a couple of years time we'll be destitute, penniless, unemployable. Or worse, captives in some jungle guerilla hideout.
So, the list of things still to do is about four pages long (thats just the house and garden, never mind the actual trip or selling the business).

The next day I journeyed by train to
Oxford, the land of higher learning. It's a beautiful place and
absolutely crawling with students of all types. The entire city
centre is essentially the university, and it certainly feels that
way. There are many cute pubs and cafes that are filled with people
reading, studying or working on projects in little groups. The
architecture is old and beautiful and many of the buildings date back
as far ...
... and group ‘consultation’ and meetings. Then there was the sheer slog of clearing out our outbuilding and garage, moving the stock, reorganising the living room into a fully functioning office with multiple phone lines, printer, desks and so on. We were out of our premises and running in the new office by the start of October, coinciding with our financial year end, and we only lost one day’s work.
