Although my preference is for the seasons which build up to the heady glory, as opposed to the end of year decline, there is something magical about the process and it’s annual repetition.

Knees would redden, visible above long grey socks, pulled up as far as they would go. A cat and mouse game ensued between us and the teachers, with […]
