Post Holiday Blues

It's been a strange few days returning back to work after a week off.

I picked up some kind of infection (probably from the kids!) and have been struggling with time and motivation since Monday.

Some random, but wholly predictable events led me to the Courtauld Gallery this afternoon, where like millions of others, there was a kind of identification with, yet great distance from Manet's barmaid at the Follies Berges.

The gallery is excellent - comparatively small in terms of space, yet the quality of the pictures is superb. Then it was back down the river to get some late lunch and head back to the office.
