So summer is fading and school things are popping out on every shop window. And we teachers have been called back to schools to prepare for the opening term... the first thing that happens is that a sudden blow of sadness invades my soul! I love being around our home, surrounded by family and friends, working on crafts or just spending time with my hubby :) and my electric little girl! Then, gradually, I come to terms with the other me, the teacher, and start creating new plans to delight my very, very young pupils and so trick them into learning ;)
But `tis not without effort and grief that I leave this loose, reckless me of the summer, trying to cuddle some of it's warmth inside.
