Can you understand now why I’m so exhausted? I loved every moment of this week, but I can honestly say that I am perfectly content to spend tonight catching up on my blog and other to-do’s. The rest of this week will be busy, so I don’t feel bad spending one night in. We leave London on Sunday, but it’s been an amazing stay here. Can’t wait for Oxford!
