Because Father is away, the court and elders are a lot busier than usual. I got away with not writing in my diary for a few days, but Maister Colman isn’t as busy as the others and he checked. It’s not fair! Darryn doesn’t have to keep a diary, and he’s not even a from a noble family. I don’t think he even knows how to write.
Father is supposed to get back tomorrow, and everyone is getting ready. Nurse says there won’t be a feast, but there’s always a feast when Father gets home so she must be wrong.
Mother hasn’t left her quarters since Father left, though she has sent her maid to call servants up a few times.
