Well that’s it. Summer’s over. No more lazy days making the most of the sun. School starts next week. Time to swap flip flops for boots, order logs and get back to the real world.
There are spiders’ webs on car mirrors in the morning and a hint of chill in the air, refreshing, energising.
Holidays are over. Back to work again.
It’s a time to dream of new exercise books with all those clean untouched pages, new pens and pencils to make our mark. Even for those of us who left school a long time ago, the September air has a tantalising tang of new beginnings. This year will be different. All sorts of possibilities…
January has always seemed a daft time for a year to start. In the bleak midwinter we just want to hibernate and get through the dark until the spring comes round.
But September is much more crisp and purposeful. A good time for a fresh start.
This time we won’t mess up our execrise books. This time we’ll try harder. This time we’ll get it right.
All this and new boots too.
Happy New Year!
