Did I mention my mum was back??

She’s been overseas for almost two months…

First she was giving a paper at a conference at Harvard (cool huh)… then she went to Ravenna and Venice and Vienna – and then a 35 day tour that went from Istanbul to Cairo – staying in everything from a “proper” hotel to a bedouin camp!

She came back on Thursday and brought many gifts 🙂 I am *very* hard to buy gifts for – so she’s tried to get useful things – including some very very nice Egyptian Cotton towels from – you guessed it – Egypt!!!

I also have anti evil eye stuff from Turkey and a wonderful Isis… she’s going to love her new home I am sure!

Anyway – it’s nice to have my mum home… and I’m very proud of her…
