Tonight Jenny has her year 13 leavers ball. Although she is a year 13, she actually stayed down a year and has retaken her AS levels, so next year will be her final year
I wrote at the time how hard her decision was, but a year on she knows it was the best one. However, tonight, when she says goodbye to so many of her year, it may just hurt all over again!
I have dropped her and her friends off this evening: friends that she has known since she was 5 when we first moved here, and friends that she has made along the way. Some of them are not going to uni, some of them are going : some near, some far: it really is the end of an era!
