The girls organised a surprise party for me today. I was forewarned and so played along, feigning surprise while at the same time demonstrating genuine delight. And when the time came to bid them all farewell there were hugs and tears and promises to all keep in touch via email. After all the uncertainty of the last few months the time spent with these girls has been heartening to say the least and I feel as though my faith in childhood has been restored, as has my belief in my own ability to create the magic and spread the love.
