Big School

End of one chapter, beginning of another: A's first day at secondary school. Longish bus journey, big building, a thousand children... But she took it all in her stride. 
I remember my first day: cycling to Chi High on my Chopper, green blazer, green tie, charcoal trousers, Leeds Unit bag filled with PE kit, dictionary and geometry set. It was the beginning of the Cod Wars with Iceland, the end of the Munich Olympics and Slade's Mama Were All Crazee Now had just replaced Rod Stewart's You Wear it Well at No.1. Another era...
