The weather was brighter by last night. Key lessons to learn from yesterday include remembering to check a bedroom for cats before closing the door and leaving. Viv went to the parents liaison committee last night and brought Janice home for coffee. As ever, many of the world's problems were theoretically solved. Not much else. Fish and chips. Coffee. Sleep. Back to this morning, cold but dry. Tonight sees the open evening at Taita College, where David goes, where Matthew will in next year.
