Last Saturday I took a quick trip up to Oxfordshire to visit some friends.
First, I stopped by Oxford itself and had lunch with my lovely friend Tenderhooligan. It was a gloriously sunny day and we walked into Oxford High Street and had lunch at the All Bar One. I had a haloumi kebab and it was absolutely yummy; I think Tenderhooligan had the rib eye steak sandwich and that was yummy too.
We had a great time but it was too short and over too soon. Oxford is rapidly becoming one of my favourite cities and hopefully we’ll get to visit again before the summer is over. I definitely want to go boating on the river! Then again, we could always visit the lovely Hawkwell House Hotel over Christmas again like we did last year. I have really fond memories of the cosy warm and Christmassy atmosphere there last year.
The next stop on my quick tour was to visit some fellow South African friends in Bicester (pronounced ‘Bister’) which is a little town north east of Oxford. We only had time for a quick cup of tea before I drove back first to Guildford, Surrey to pick up Stephen and have some Chinese and then we were off home. I was so tired after travelling for the better part of five hours that day that I slept for over 12 hours that night! Shoo! Driving around fair England can be tiring.
