Back to CH

So on Saturday (24th April) I decided to go to back to Christ's Hospital for Old Blue's Day. It was the strangest experience and I'm not sure it was altogether positive. Some friends and I met up to take that familiar train to our station- Christ's Hospital. It was completely surreal- I knew where everything was but times had definitely changed and I was no longer as welcome. I felt like a tourist in the magnificent Quad and marching into lunch felt like a distant memory. The best thing about the day was catching up with people as well as the picnic on Big side and I was lucky enough to sit in on my first ever band practise. In true CH style, there were problems on the train getting home but that was to be expected.

I couldn't believe our year group photos were still up. This was taken on my Grecians and I'm second in on the left on the back row.
