My life outside books:
My daughter came home from Oman on Thursday! It is so good to see her. We did our second Christmas the night she came home so have now de-holidayed the house. I go back to work tomorrow so it really feels as if we're now into a new year.

The second week of my vacation was spent catching up with friends, going for walks, and hanging out with my daughter. Luckily she is home until January 20 so we have lots of time together.
