Before I started at Primary School I went to nursery in the adjacent school (demolished in the month I left and now a car park). The school room had a two storey playhouse, there was a secret garden and a log in the playground. I can remember so many snippets from my time there; spreading my hands through paint, singing rhymes long out of fashion and that wonderful playhouse. This picture is from the Christmas celebration performance where I was a Holly Girl.
Can you remember how seriously you took your roles when you were young? That’s how I felt right here, trying so hard to walk in the right place and keep the holly from pricking my legs.
I don’t recall what we were singing, making the advent crowns or half the names of the children. But I can remember cutting my own fringe mere days before this and how furious my Mother was when she saw it. She always asks me if I remember when I cut my own fringe, of course I do, I’ll never forget.
