School Bench, Treat and John Donne

28 Jun

We collected T from school today and were pleased to see this delightful bench, just one of several in the yard. I used to love teaching with ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’, a novel by Michelle Magorian that was sure to touch hearts.

We had half an hour before T’s street dance class so went to a coffee shop nearby for treats. 

We all need people around us, especially in this time of such uncertainty. John Donne summed it up for us in  1624.

    It’s like Britain is imploding into itself….this whole thing is part of a very old strategy and makes for miserable history. Please be safe!

      You are right and it is very sad that the nation has brought this upon itself. We will take care, thank you.

    Have the Brexit riots started over there, yet? 😉

      Frighteningly, that’s not as remote a possibility as you may think. Dread stalks many of us who voted to stay in . The racist and xenophobic attacks are really disgusting and scary for so many,born here or not.

        I’m hearing some of the stories. Ugly is the word that comes to mind.
