Need to put writing in this!

Oxford consisted of 3 terms of just 8 weeks each. Thus having become friendly with David by early December 1964, many letters winged between Ashton and Belfast during the s four weeks of Christmas holidays, and by the time term started in 1965 we were an item. He was at Pembroke, a brisk 10 minute walk distant. I had a bike which i used a lot in the first 2 years but then it was stolen. David and I enjoyed walking in the Parks, adjacent to the Physics labs.
