This is the Oxford of my memories..
The curve of the High Street - buses, bikes and tourists..
The University Examination Hall..
(I actually took my Grade 1 Music Theory exam in this enormous building - aged 7)
The Jewellers where Mark found my engagement ring...
...And colleges where I went on Language and Linguistics courses while I was studying for my A Levels..
University security men outside the Sheldonian Theatre - and a graduation ceremony taking place..
Oxford's Debenhams - Home of my Mum's "Great Ryvita Scam"
(She convinced us that Debenham's Ryvitas were the most exotic food stuff on the planet - rather than the cheapest option. Oddly enough, my sister and I still have an obsession with crackers and savoury biscuits. Early training lasts...!)
Boswells - Home of pretty much anything and everything.
(I actually bought 8 X 100Watt light bulbs there on Saturday)
This is the Oxford of new memories...
made last weekend during my Parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Weekend.
Oxford Prison and Castle..
I left Oxford in January 1991 when the prison was still in use... The castle is now a museum..
While the main building has now become a luxury hotel....
My parents opening some of the huge number of cards from family, friends and neighbours..
Grandad and Youngest Niece - exhausted by the process!!!!
