On the last day of September

Do you remember singing this song in primary school?

The big ship sails on the ally-ally-oh
The ally-ally-oh, the ally-ally-oh
Oh, the big ship sails on the ally-ally-oh
On the last day of September.

The captain said it will never, never do
Never, never do, never, never do
The captain said it will never, never do
On the last day of September.

The big ship sank to the bottom of the sea
The bottom of the sea, the bottom of the sea
The big ship sank to the bottom of the sea
On the last day of September.

We all dip our heads in the deep blue sea
The deep blue sea, the deep blue sea
We all dip our heads in the deep blue sea
On the last day of September.

I do, in the playground in primary school and apart from the words and the ship all that it conjured up to me was that it was the last day of September. I've been humming it all day to the point where I had to sing it and now write it down so I would stop, but now you have read this and remember it you can sing too! 

In honour of the big ship and my many hours of humming, I spent the last day of September in the garden tidying up and watching bees in the very hot sun. Daniel slept all afternoon and then we shared a tuna sandwich.

Here's to October cardigans!
