In Daughter's busy schedule, it is perhaps surprising that she is actually home when it is her birthday. So 24 today - an age she describes as being a "crap age", neither young enough or old enough apparently. I don't know what that means really.
Last year we went to Le Caprice and saw Tara Palmer Tomkinson. This year we went to a really nice pub near Oxford that one of Wife's clients recommended and had a really lovely meal. The place was packed out - so some pubs are doing OK
Daughter has had quite a year. This time last year, she was working for a Management Consultants in London and not enjoying it. A few month's later she quit. Since then, she has been to India for 3 months working for a micro finance bank, had three months in the far east where she visited four or five countries and did a yoga-teacher-training course. And she is off to Tanzania in a few weeks time where she'll be teaching English for a couple of months.
She has some things to do in Europe over the summer and then should be starting her MSc / PhD in the autumn.
So what a year!
