Day 287 of 365: Tis the Season
It's that time, folks! The end of the school year here in Britain is nigh and what else does that mean but time for GIFTS!
This little treasure was given me by a smart little cookie in my maths class. She casually mentioned yesterday that she had something for me and low and behold...here it was in all it's crystal goosy and gold-wing/beak glory.
Click on the photo for a closer gander, if you'd like.
When I asked her where she got it, she replied, "from home."
Hmm, so is this where I plan to hide in the cupboard for parents' evening tomorrow night in case her mom discovers that part of the contents of her curio cabinet now sit proudly on my teacher desk?
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
