OTTAWA -- Prime Minister Stephen Harper's motorcade didn't run any red lights Monday when he was driven to work by his security detail.

His cat Stanley purred on a kitchen chair beside him when he ate breakfast at 24 Sussex Drive.

Harper's first day back at the office after a six-week recess was like most days when the House of Commons sits, including a quick working lunch at his Centre Block desk and meetings with key legislative and executive staff.

On Twitter, under the hashtag "dayinthelife", the prime minister shared commentary and snapshots of a routine day with his followers and served up details from the breakfast table to the end of his shift.

And like many days, protesters stomped and danced and waved flags and placards on Parliament Hill - this time demanding action on aboriginal grievances.
