The whole thing looked so pretty, I was reluctant to start opening any of the goodies to begin with. Look at the toadstool paper!!!
I'm not normally an overly-emotional person (and I COULD always blame my pesky pregnancy hormones), but I was really overwhelmed by the gifts as I opened them up. Clearly, those little kids and their parents know me SO well, and put SUCH a lot of effort into selecting things that I'd love. There MAY even have been a few tears.
Here, have a little look at my gorgeous gifts.....
[a knit-your-own-teddy-bear kit]
[a red and white spotty Cath Kidston mug]
[pearly, heart-shaped buttons]
[a 'thank you teacher' bookmark]
[a cute toadstool ornament, now on display in my crafting room]
[a box full of multi-coloured buttons]
[and a precious book made up of pictures drawn by each of the children]
What a wonderful leaving present!!! And what a lucky teacher!!!
Just in case any of the Owls' parents happen to be visiting, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Now I'm off to start on my knit-your-own-teddy-bear (I think I might well be able to do it laying down)..... :-)
