First Day - Last Day
William's first day...Sept 11th 2001
William, my youngest, finishes junior school today. Is that sad or what!? It seems like only the day before yesterday when he was being interviewed for the newspaper on his first day (Sept 11th 2001 by the way). I know this time flies and seems like only yesterday stuff is a cliché - but like so many clichés it is one because it happens to be true!
I remember when I finished junior school, sitting in the classroom all alone, watching the other kids through the window going home and feeling...what...erm, a nostalgic kind of melancholy... sadness - "this is the last time I will be at this school"...I obviously had difficulties with farewells even then.
William said, "uh huh...it is strange..." I think he feels the family melancholy too.
