Spent a nice few weeks north again. It's nice to get out to a place where you can walk out the door and be completely alone. No-one needs you at work and no-one keeps pestering you with something else. Sitting on a log in the sun and watching the snow and ice melt from the lake is a wonderful way to improve one's perspective.
Returning "home", I pick up pretty much where I left; get new tasks from work and see when the exam days are.
