On a sunny and warm Sunday afternoon in July...

... we were driving back home from teaching in Lincolnshire, and we decided to go through the Cotswolds - a fairly direct way home, but slower that going in the motorway.  But very much prettier, too!

We drove through a few villages and stopped for a drink and a bite in one of our favourites, Lower Slaughter (no idea of why the name...).  It has a river, many beautiful Cotswold-stone cottages, a big hotel (which used to belong to the Lords of the Manor), an old Mill with a working water-wheel, and attached little museum;  and of course, a pub!  big and with a huge garden.

Now I'm back home and back to work!  Looking forward to going to the Festival of Quilts, 8th - 11th August, at the NEC Birmingham!
