The cafe reopened today, and that means the end of the peaceful period whereby there were only three of us residing at the centre, because everyone else went to a big festival in The Lake District. Now, all residents are back… actually no, that’s a lie. Everybody will be back on Thursday; we’re a teacher and a second director down, but when they return on the 25th (which is Thursday), we’ll be a full-house again, and everything kicks back into action.
Which essentially means Summer is nearly over. That shouldn’t be much of a shock, because it’s almost September, but when you’ve had this concept of a nice easy summer, and in fact you’ve spent it working, writing, having a creative breakdown, and generally not really doing stuff, the time seems to have gone too fast. September, wow, really, we’re almost in autumn.
