Away Break

The week beginning 30th October is the reading week at UCL. Sheep and I have been talking about needing a bit of a break and it occurred to us that we could actually take a short break away. We're not going for the whole week, partially because my mother will have just moved in and I'd like to be around to help out (it would be a bit awful, if she moved down here only to have us disappear the moment she arrives!). So, we are thinking of having a long weekend away, from Thursday 2nd November until Sunday 5th. We are considering staying in a Youth Hostel in Stow-on-the-Wold, in the Chilterns, which has family rooms, a children's menu, a cot etc. And it's only an hour and 20 minutes away, so it should be pretty low-stress in terms of travelling. There's also some fun things to do with children in the area: In Bourton-on-the-Water, which is close by, there is a miniature village, which I think Barnaby would like as well as "The Model Railway Exhibition" which is meant to be the largest model railway anywhere - what could Barnaby not like about that? Anyway, this is currently our plan... and the Isle of Wight was OK.

Ooh! Stow is not that far from me, either. I'm actually away that weekend, going to Hay on Wye, but I've booked Friday off as a travelling day and perhaps we could co-ordinate for me to pop over for a cup of tea on my way? (as far as I can tell it's not even all that much out of the way...)
