I cannot remember a summer like this one since the heady days of 1969. Although only a child back then I can still recall racing home from school every September afternoon to enjoy the everlasting sunshine among the dams and dens by the old railway line at Potto Beck.
1876 was a very special year:
Queen Victoria became the Empress of India
Prime minister Disraeli was made Earl of Beaconsfield
The Settle-Carlisle railway opened to passenger traffic
Lewis Carroll’s ‘The Hunting of the Snark’ was published
Port Vale football club was formed
I am making plans this weekend as it is a week to my summer holidays and I am busy delegating! Part of having a restful holiday is knowing that you have covered off client matters and management tasks so that it is business as usual for everyone while you are away.
There is something funny about September and that is, that even though in my case at least it is many years since I was at school and that even my children no longer follow this timetable, September always feels like the start of a new “work” year.
