As August dissolves into September, I stepped out of the house today expecting a kind of melancholy to kick in with the end of the summer months. There was frost on the grass and for the first time in ages it was cold enough to see my breath in the air. However, my bus turned up on time, which was made a pleasant change. This got me to the train station early, which meant that I could get myself a coffee from the little shop on the station platform. When I reached for my change I realised that I had enough stamps on my loyalty card to get a free drink. To top it all off, the guy behind the counter even called me ‘Squire!’ I’m now full of positive vibes and looking forward to the weekend, even if it brings September with it.
