In the same month that my son is due to start his first full year of education, I am due to embark on my last (for the forseeable future anyway). The primary school nursery intake for J is slow, starting the second week of September, two mornings each week and becoming five mornings a week by the end of the month. But I am thrown immediately back into the world of college from week 1. Its been a long break, I’m afraid I may have forgotten everything. But I’m excited to be going back, even though I know this year is going to be the most difficult yet. This will be my view for a whole day each week for the next year, so I may as well embrace it.
