DD went on a country walk with the Brownies Wednesday night and she and her friends came back with a handful of flowes they had picked (mostly wild flowers but a few garden ones too.Bit {hmm} about where they came from -but still.When she got home she put them carefully in a vase of water ,then next morning sh wrapped them up carefully in a paper towel and took them to school.There her and her 2 friends made a basket out of card and sellotape and decorated it for these decidedly sad-looking by now flowers.They all made and signed a joint card and gave it all to teh teacher this morning.Did she like it asked (trying not to grimace?
Yes said DD- she cried ! (in a good way I am assuming)
So i've put the box of chocs I'd bought back in the cupboard and reflected on what a gift means!

Aww that is cute. smile

I work in a pre-school and not that I am ungrateful or anything but if I see or eat another celebrations chocolate, I think I will lose the will to live.

That's lovely

I am a TA these days nad got some lovely gifs today, but the homemade cards with the personal messages have been lovely. One little boy wrote me a card to say thank you for reading Horrid Henry books to them at snack time, (as it is one of his favourite pars of the school day).

katiestar...how lovely! Really goes to show, it is the small sentiments that mean the most!

Fimbo, I am with you! 12 boxes of roses and celebration chocolates this year! Sadly, I do not like British chocolate, so it will go to my DH!
