"Can't you get detention for carrying a man purse?" - Richard
It feels so weird to think that one week ago today we were preparing for the OxTrad Ball and departures, all running around busy and stressed trying to sort everything in time to send the kids off. I miss it.
Today was technically my day off, even though it didn't much feel like one. I did get to sleep in, which was nice, except ...
