Bright Blue – Seaside Daisy
Her little girl stood out from the crowd.
Standing at the school gates, she was dressed in a bright blue dress; her favourite. It had been washed so much, some of the daisies had faded a little, but she didn’t care. It made her feel safe, on her first day at nursery. Ever since she brought it on holiday to the seaside, she loved the gentleness of the cotton.
She let go of her mummies hand, and kissed her goodbye – she was looking forward to meeting friends. Her mummy didn’t seem as happy, but smiled anyway.
‘I’ll be okay Mummy, I promise.’
‘Hello, my name’s Rachel, and it’s my first day,’ she said, striding up to her teacher.
‘Well, hello Rachel, my name is Mrs Wilson, and I’m your teacher. I love your dress, and what are those flowers?’
‘They’re daisies, I love all flowers, but my favourite are daisies.’
‘That’s good, you go on inside, and Miss Duncan will tell you where to put your coat. I think she has some milk to drink if you want some.’
Walking up to a little girl, who was crying, she said, ‘Hi, I’m Rachel.’
