Yesterday I was sitting having lunch with my wife and 2 of our children, plus another friend and her 2 children, in a local (Very Nice!) coffee shop (The Sadlers, if your ever dropping by I’ll let you take me there for lunch any time!). Anyway Faringdon is a small Market town (population about 6,000) about 15 miles outside of Oxford and on the edge of the Cotswolds. Whilst years ago it was on the main route from East to West England and hence has a lot of watering holes and old inns it is not somewhere that you would just pass through (although this is a shame as it is a really nice place). Anyway as I sat there having just finished a fantastic freshly made Bacon, Lettuce and Sun dried tomato Baguette and awaiting a superb slice of Carrot Cake I saw a couple of faces I recognised looking at the menu in the window. Now of course being a small town and especially with my work in the town it’s perhaps not surprising I know a lot of people around here, but these faces didn’t fit in, it was indeed the Famous Little Alice and Steve Price (who for those of you who don’t know either of them live in Croydon). I only managed a brief chat but it was great to see them and talk for a few minutes. If you read this I hope you had a good break and enjoyed the town.

    We had a lovely break thanks, visiting lots of different places, watching two films and bumping into you!
