This is my first day dress.
It is the dress I wore to start my present job.
However, it reminded me of my first day when I was on placement at a High School.
I was terrified of forgetting the names of my class until a kindly old English teacher sat in my lesson and gave me some reassuring feedback.
At the bottom she had written "Don't worry about remembering their names, if you forget, just call them Petal."
While the advice may have worked with my year 7s, it wasn't much use with the burly bottom set of boys in year 10!
Still, the name Petal is one I find reassuring - just like this dress.
