The cherubic face of Bob Scruggles, the owner of the roadside cafe Eat it Up!, comes in full view. His constant smile gets me to smile again. If smiles were infections, his would be the common cold.
Couple of scones, some tea and impulsive reflexes and face contortions later, I come up with the perfect idea for my management project.
I savour the walk across the back alleys of the school and meet the familiar cat lurking around the corner. The crumbs of the bread in my pocket will lead to some discomfort with respect to clothing, but there is nothing more beautiful than a happy cat.
Effective walk, looming projects and cheerful creatures later, I sink into the boredom of my life. But not before my own special moments of the day.
