I have serious issues with the idea of teacher gifts. I don't even remember buying my teachers gifts when I was at school. In fact im pretty sure when I left college I just went to the pub and brought my teachers a round of drinks.
Anyway at Lil Mans nursery some of the mums were starting to trot out the gifts (one per teacher I might add, and there's like four of them) and whilst part of me thinks yes they do a lovely job of looking after my baby boy bu they also get paid for it?
Yeah I know I'm mean but I don't remember anyone getting me a worlds best barmaid mug.
So I decided the best way to not feel like a massive cow who doesn't appreciate them was to make something for the nursery. So I decided to embroider some cushion covers with some of mine and lil mans favourite book quotes.
We opted for winnie the pooh "as soon as I saw you I knew an adventure was going to happen"
"There's no such thing as a gruffalo?"
and Dr Seuss "You're off to great places! Today is your day, your mountain is waiting so..... get on your way!"
It kind of turned out as a win win! I got to give a gift but I didn't have to buy anything!
I handed them over this morning and I think they went down well!!!
In other news boy have we been busy!!!
Thursday, I had Lil mans end of year assembly [He didn't participate apart from to say his one line, In his defence he was tired but still!]
Friday, we went to see Rikkis Grandad because he'd had a knee op, and then I went out with my friends because one of them is leaving to teach in Thailand. I had a lovely night out and wore my tartan pencil skirt although I did have to let it out a bit and reinforce the side seams because I had visions of them splitting when I sat down!
Saturday , we were suppose to be at a BBQ but the bad weather meant it was cancelled! which was actually pretty lucky for me as I was suffering from a Mumover![Mumover- When you wake up the morning after a night of not drinking but feel like a big bag of dying because you've stayed up past 11.00pm]
Sunday, the boys went to the football and I stayed in and watched movies with Rikkis Grandad. Which was lovely until I banged my head on the bathroom cabinet and had to spend an hour with a bag of peas on my head [Yes I had a massive lump on my head and fully sulked because I hurt myself! And I had a massive headache to boot!] We did manage to fix my hand crank sewing machine between us though [more on that another day!]
Monday, went to finalise some wedding stuff! Which was lovely, and the venue is still the absolute bomb!
Tuesday, went to the zoo! I got sunburn! [Review of zoo will be coming this week!]
Wednesday, Rikki went to help his brother move and I looked after my two nephews with Rikki's Nan and Grandad [note: Children do not like warm weather it makes them grouchy!]
and today? well today I'm going to try and put my house in some sort of order!
And them maybe sit down and have a little rest!!!
