Yesterday, Rooney and Harvey the PE Department monkeys came bounding over to me, having just safely returned from their ski trip, full of tales of the piste and their Italian experience…..
…… and bearing gifts of a most romantic Italian and comestible type nature for Darrell, Nigel and I, to wit one very large jar of exotically coloured, proper and authenticated Italian pasta …..
…. I was totally overwhelmed and touched that they had thought of me, and then my mind immediately raced to thoughts of a suitable Bolognese sauce to accompany their gift! The boys said that their week had gone well, but unfortunately there had been a broken wrist on the first day and a collision involving a head and a ski on another ….. but spirits had been high and the mood buoyant …… and they made sure that they had “Abbracciato l'esperienza per tutto ciò che valeva la pena” (embraced the experience for all it was worth).
They also said that as soon as their pictures came back from Truprint I would be the first to see them, after they had removed the incrementing ones first!!!!! ….. I can’t wait!!
