Daughter did indeed decide to return from Tanzania two weeks earlier than originally planned and she has made good use of the time since she got back.
Some good news - she got into the College that she wanted. A few days ago we went into Oxford for the University open day and had a very quick look round her college and then up to the accommodation blocks. She seems very pleased - and rightly so.
And she has done a good number of things with her friends in London, so the two weeks that she would have still been in Africa have flown by.
She and I have decided to go to France for a long weekend in a week or so's time - the first time she will have seen the house since December. I have a lot to sort out with our project manager and Daughter just fancies a change of scenery and some nice french food. I'm quite looking forward to that trip.
