Today is back to school day in England, Lula starts secondary school. She- cool calm and collected, Damian and I- nervous, churning, emotional. She is going to our local comprehensive, chosen because of its results and amazing facilities but it was a failing school a few years ago and all the time I've lived in this area (29 years) it has not has the best reputation. It is the sort of school that, despite its dramatic turn around, some parents still raise their eye brows and give me the sympathy face when they hear that is our choice. I am confident, it was one of the best improved schools in recent years and the teacher part of me is certain she will have a great and happy time and exciting opportunities. I know the education is good but locally, in a small city, reputation takes a while to change.

So to all of you with children, nieces, nephews, etc starting school of any sort today it made me think of this track, I have it on vinyl so I can't play it but it take me to happy places in my head. A little known Kinks LP but a wonderful listen.
