Wednesdays at Shine used to be a large part of my life back in 2010 – every Wednesdays I was here, greeting all of the students and parents and chatting with anyone who wanted to talk. Now, 2011, today is the first time I am in on a Wednesday – some things have changed whilst others haven’t! New parents and students ask for my name whilst spending the time to get to know me, whilst the ‘older’ parents and students ask where I have been – some even thinking I had left Shine! Today has been a day filled with both laughter as well as insight through deep soulful conversations. I had a nice deep and meaningful conversation about pretty much everything to do in life with a parent I had met today, whilst I also enjoyed watching one of our hilarious mums playing very seriously on her smart-phone! Her continual mutterings and sudden slamming of her hands onto her thighs kept me constantly amused throughout the 30 minutes she was here. All in all – it is nice to be back here on a Wednesday!
