It has been a very busy week with a class of very tired and niggly students (and sorry to say, one grouchy teacher assistant). Fortunately there have been some treats coming my way to make me very happy indeed. It isn't even the last day and I've got some gorgeous thank you presents already.
Two wonderful soaps (my reindeer patchwork cushion snuck into the photo because I love it so much).
I also got a very special thank you from one of my very precious former students, who is now 21 and is leaving school. He is severely intellectually disabled and he and I have been very close for a long time. I'm sure we will get together again in the future. He (and his mum) gave me this very large, deliciously fragrant candle.
Plus this amazing bouquet of flowers. More roses, Christmas lilies (one of my favourite flowers) and tucked here and there - chocolate!!!!
The photo does not do the flowers justice, but I couldn't drum up the energy to muck around with the camera. Only one and a half days to go until the holidays!
