I've spent the last few days away, as evidenced by my inactivity here. On Monday night, my girlfriend and I went to her and her mother's house in Newark from then until this morning, when we had classes again. During my visit there, my girlfriend, her mother and I walked around the area with their dog and visited the local castle. We had a wonderful time and it is the first occasion I've been away since I started this academic year.
I shall be visiting them all again next month, although I'll see my girlfriend several times before then and will see her mother before that time, too.
