On Friday the school cook made some special Mother’s Day biscuits for the girls to buy for their mums.
Now, we don’t know who Nigel’s mum was/is (or if he ever had one in the first place) because, if you remember, he came to us free with a packet of PG Tips back in November/December 2010 ………..
……. but he was insistent that he was going to buy some, and who were we to rain on his proverbial parade?
So Darrell took him down to the kitchen to make his considered purchase, opting for the chocolate heart and shortbread combo.
……. his little face was a picture, and for the rest of the day he kept on looking over at the packet sitting on his desk as he did some rush photocopying for the Geography Department.
He then clutched it carefully all the way home on the Banga Bus, mindful that if held too robustly the chocolate would melt. We have to admit to feeling a little sad for Nigel and although he didn’t have a mum to give his treasure to Nigel was totally unperturbed, just happy that he had been part of something.
When he got home, he put his dainties on a plate for us all to share …… and to quote the words of Wet Wet Wet …… “Love was all around us”
The more observant of our readers (like Mr D) may have noticed some of our handiwork in the pictures …… Darrell designed and I laminated the signs for the biscuits …….. we are sooooooo proud!
xxxx Happy Mother’s Day xxxx
