Summer 2022: Making memories

A flying visit to London recently to celebrate the end of A Levels led to a walk around one of my old student stomping grounds – Bloomsbury on a very sunny day in the capital.

It was thirty-two years ago that I used to spend early mornings in the Italian coffee shop next to Russell Square tube station and lunchbreaks in the park, eating cheese and chutney sandwiches and putting the world of education to rights with fellow students. Now the park has a fountain and a swanky coffee shop of its own, there’s still plenty to fix in education and my own daughter is on the brink of university life.

I’m excited for her and perhaps a little envious but this is her time. She’ll be making memories of her own. Today we’re touring charity shops in search crockery and glasses for her student digs.
