That was the first day at Primary school. Tomorrow is the last.
An awful lot has changed since then, and the plans for my life that I had at that time went very awry.
I got a little misty eyed (as Rich would say), but then I realised I don’t actually feel unhappy about where I’ve ended up.
That little girl is now so much braver and more independent than I ever thought possible, and, so am I.
