The town where one of the universities that I work in is said to be a posh area, populated with upper-middle-class families and boutique shops. The university itself is also prestigious in terms of its academic ranking.

T's first lunch box day in the new nursery

Today is the first lunch box day in T's nursery. Since it was already some time ago that I made lunch box for him, I was particularly anxious. From the day that the plan was announced, I have been somehow preoccupied by planning a menu, grocery shopping, and making up cooking plan to make sure that everything would be done on time before we departed for the nursery.

Therefore, I ended up waking up at 3.30 am to cook a very basic and normal lunch.

T made a cake of fallen leaves on an fine autumn day on campus 
The delivery of T to the nursery today was not entirely smooth. He was in a good mood but strangely persistent. Everything was normal as everyday else, but at breakfast he had a comment that he did not want to go to the nursery. He would have a thought like this once in a while, and there is little to be done to make sure about his really meaning. When faced with his idea of this sort, most of the time I would try to understand and to think more carefully about what he really wants. However, most of the time they are just his passing thoughts or something that happens to come to his tongue. Sometimes when I am busy, like these days now, I can only ignore the duty to look into his mind.

It is a national holiday here today (Oct 9), a day of sports, but many universities still carry on their teaching calendar without interruption.
