1. The smell of baked potatoes has reached my desk, so it might be nearly lunchtime.
2. The children are starting to talk about their plans for the summer holidays, which makes it seem within reach.
3. While we are staring into the vivarium before bed, we spot Slugmilla riding on the back of a snail. The snails like to sleep on the roof, hanging upside down like bats, and when the snail reaches its roost, Slugmilla slides off -- rather huffily, I thought -- and makes her way back down to ground level.
