Yesterday entailed lectures, tutorials, and the evening back at home for my mother's birthday. We had a home cooked birthday dinner followed by lemon cake, plenty of chatting and happy smiles around the table. The mother actually just seemed happy enough to have us all together. En route to the show this morning, essay stress rather cunningly put aside nice and neatly in a little box in my mind to deal with later.
Starbucks vanilla rooibus tea in hand and the hat is back. It must be feeling a little more like spring.
