A distinctly lazy day, hanging out with the remnants of yesterday's get-together: reading the papers, eating, watching Murray win Wimbledon (that and the Lions beating Australia yesterday - what's going on? It'll be the Ashes next...) and, at risk of calling it exercise, a stroll round the village, population 400. Its chief claim to fame is Sulgrave Manor, ancestral home of George Washington. There's a nice 300-year old pub too, and a Post Office run by the villagers themselves, which seems to be a new (and good) thing these days. A charming, English village in other words.
