    A wander up Cowley Rd on a sunny day is fun - as a female, it starts with ogling the dress in the Ball Gown, then nipping into the fancy dress shop to contemplate my next bop costume, then going into the various charity shops (either for bop costumes, or just clothes in general - picked up some gorgeous shoes in the Cowley Rd Oxfam, brand new...), getting all your shopping in Tesco, cheap stationary from the stationary shop, general cookery/bakery stuff from the general stores... It's cool up there
    Not to mention the City Arms, at the edge of civilization. And Classic Wines and Beers of course - when you're paying 30p for a bottle it doesn't matter that every fifth one has gone off.

    Currently looking at a house for next year on Cowley Road itself - Liz likes that it's pink.

    The other one we're consider is in Headington, not as big as the other house with quite limited dining area which could get a bit cramped. Main issue with the pink house is that the landlord's apparently an arse and the agency are useless, which after this year is something we'd like to avoid.

    Thanks, wish I hadn't absolutely choked though - for some reason I always get nervous in the MOLT. Would have been better off not trying to memorise the words.

    I don't have a bike. I would probably run over children, or be run over by a bus if I tried using it in Oxford.

    Nah, you did fine. The MOLT isn't exactly the most comfortable place in terms of pro human design. It looks nice until you have to actually do something in it.

    Yeah, but probably not from Annes, LMH, Hughs, I'd guess. It takes me 10-15 mins to walk to Hugh's from Wadham, and another 15 mins from Wadham to Cowley if I'm on foot.
