It's been an exceptionally good day today. Not only was the weather really pleasant again, but it was the end-of-year show for my students. I didn't realise until about 2pm - the show opened at 6pm - how proud of them I am. They really have been exceptional this year and everyone who saw the show commented on the excellent quality of the work.
Two unrelated but lovely things also put me in a good mood: 1) a pair of old trousers which I wore to the opening yielded two well-washed £10 notes from one of the pockets, and; 2) There was home-made ginger beer in the fridge for me to drink with dinner.
Long may it continue!
