Schooldays !

Small children in large bulky blazers,
squeaky boxy black shiny shoes,
white knee high socks , dazzling white shirts with chunky ties at the collar,
smart grey trousers with creases up the centre,
pretty pinafores and cosy V-neck sweaters,
oversized school bags carried bravely to the doors,
smiles, tears
photographs and chatter,
hugs and anxious faces ,
Gran waves, Mum blows her nose, as Dad pushes them off to the
First Day at School
That will be me next year , as my youngest starts school, but my heart went out to the parents whose little ones started today - it takes me back!
Hope it all went well!
