End of the summer

The 'first' day of school today. Staff meetings, preparing the classrooms, then INSET on Child Protection - most of which was irrelevant or over-lengthy.

Yet yesterday felt like high summer. The sky blazed blue hot all day. Most of Guernsey seemed to be on the beach or in the water - me included. It was fabulous.

Even in the evening, folk were still swimming in a glassy sea.

Even this morning, clouds scudded and wheeled across the sky, freshly rain washed in warm air. It felt like an early morning in Mombasa.

Now, this evening, the weather has turned. It is very windy, cool, with the threatening of rain for tomorrow.

Back to school indeed.
