Flowers.... and appreciation.....


I will upload a picture of them later, because they got left at school because Wednesday is A Horrible Busy Day after school, but I was given flowers yesterday.

By a parent.

For taking such good care of his child.

Part of me giggled a bit and thought "Ho hum, that's m'job!"  and part of me was touched really deeply that someone had taken the time to go to the shop (and these were not a bunch from Tesco or the garage!) and to buy a thankyou card, and to write it, and then to drive to school at lunchtime to get them to me.

There are days when being a teacher is amazingly unappreciated.  This was not one of them.

It's started today off with a smile just thinking about them!  Thankyou C's dad.  You're lovely!
