Last Janurary I bought my graduation dress. I got it in the post-debs sale in Debenhams. I was and still am delighted with it and have shoes to match too. But it’s going to be another year before I get to present and combine it with a cap and gown. One of the more difficult years I’ve had so far has resulted in me repeating final year. There’s part of me that is delighted! Maybe relieved is a more appropriate description. The idea of leaving university made me panic, upset and a little nervous to be honest. Stepping into the real world? I definitely wasn’t ready for that, but repeating?
As I’ve said before I work in McDonald’s and it’s a regular occurrence that staff members get transferred between stores. So when Alison McGovern walked through the doors it was nothing unusual to me. Little did I know who had walked into my life.
