Back in the office

Today is my first day back at work after three months daddy leave. It's been great (I highly recommend it!) but it's also good to be back. I feel pretty energetic and motivated, but I'm sure it's just temporary.

As part of the new start I refurbished my homepage (can you guess what the banner depicts?), I bought two new sweaters and I just printed (I really should get an ereader) 6 papers that I have to review. Yes, I'm ready for work!
