Today has been brill. I went to Oxford for the first time which is ridiculous seeing as it's only an hour away. I was shown round by somebody who studied there and so knows all the best places and he showed me the huge dining room where they filmed for Harry Potter - it was amazing. Then we went here which is the most amazing building. The beautiful carving and stone work were enough to bring tears to my eyes. I love historic buildings and this one had so much craftmanship - it was fantastic - and if you've never been I would heartily recommend it. I even got on a bus for the first time in God knows how many years after using the 'park and ride' car park which is just off the M40. We had a lovely lunch and then afternoon tea. All in all a Grand Day Out.
