To celebrate Tony's birthday we had planned to go away on our own for the weekend, originally to Paris which would have been lovely but we felt it would be very hard for anyone trying to look after Arthur at the moment. Instead we went  to the Cotswolds and had an amazing weekend. 
We arrived at Woodstock  at lunch time, and had a great lunch at Hampers which is a cafe and Deli with a mouthwatering menu. Perfect start.
Having been told of a public right of way into Blenhiem Palace grounds (with out paying) by a lovely couple in Hampers, we went off for a trek around the Palace. A little bit grey with the occasional glimpse of sunlight. I felt myself calming down. I had a bit of a panic attack in the morning thinking that we would not get away,but it turns out arthur was very pleased to be looked after by Barbara and his older brothers George and Harry...infact I think he was dissapointed when we arrived back home Sunday night.
We visited Oxford on sunday it was very wet, so not great for walking around and looking at the architecture. We visited two galleries, it was amazing to actually be able to look at paintings and see them properly undisturbed, bliss.
This was a house of bricks in the Oxford Modern Gallery.
We stayed at a fab B and B just outside Oxford . Vanessa was lovely and made you feel instantly at home. Breakfast was fantastic. We went home feeling very rested and realised we need a little bit more us time.
George and Harry were brilliant with Arthur everyone had a great weekend. Ha ra!!
