Yesterday was the final lesson for the GCSE Food young ladies before going off on their study leave. Most will be returning in September when they will be in the Sixth Form but two will be going to new schools (where there will be boys!!!!)
We were all asked to join them on this special occasion, but unfortunately Nigel had arranged to go to Alton Towers with his friend Marcel and I had a pressing chiropodists appointment which just couldn’t be cancelled, so Darrell went and represented us all, taking with him small presents, “Good Luck” cards and a packet of tissues for when he inevitably became emotional.
……plus lashings of fizzy pop ….
…… all to be quaffed on very sophisticated table ware!
Darrell said that with so many choices of pizza it would have been rude not to have made several journeys to the “buffet”
What is he like?
And then, after much nomming and the giving of our presents and cards, it was time for goodbyes, good lucks and pecks on checks ….
….. and for Darrell to sniff and say he thought he had a cold coming ….
…… lost in memories of a wonderful year of stirring, tasting and evaluating and hoping that at least a couple of the girls might do A level Food so that the dream could continue!
