Super Value

Big week. Back from America, straight into a whirl of teaching, deadlines and celebrations, all adding up to a jumble of countries and memories.

The First-Born turned 21, and her slide show was a mix of photos from England, New Zealand, Australia and France: so many lovely moments, so long ago - apparently - but all still so familiar. School is French and German and Latin (Video, puellae, in me omnium vestrum ora atque oculos esse conversos... I knew that sentence would come in handy one day). And the deadlines were Queensland and Glasgow. Oh, and I had a birthday in there somewhere too.

What with all that, the late nights and the jet lag, it's a triumph that I still know which way is up.
