A whole day of intense work then a quick stir fry on the hob, dinner done within minutes and then reached a meeting. Somehow the day got extremely busy, testing every limit of my emotional, physical and social being. I don't like feeling too rushed.

River Tees, Yarm. A perfect circle from the bridge in the water, the willow tree and The Blue Bell Pub, came across this while walking with my daughter.
