I Just a short note to say thank you so much for a lovely trip. Did the Oxford/Stratford trip with Paul and Debbie yesterday. It will definately stand out as a memorable moment. I'm actually quite happy with the fact that we got some rain, must be my romantic side, as I saw the real English weather.
