Excuse the quality of the photos, but it's that time of day and that time of year! Only mid afternoon but already having to put the lights on in the house.
I was so pleased to go to the crop today even though I couldn't stay long as I was still feeling poorly. Whatever this bug is, it's horrible and I'm fed up with it! From what I hear from others, it's a two weekly thing so hopefully I am now half way through.
As for those cups I showed in yesterday's post, I am happy to say that I am not the one who has to polish them (there are over 40 prizes awarded and that's a lot of polishing!) At our school we have a policy of year 8 girls being given one day a year off of timetable to be our 'student receptionist'. They sit at a desk in the main reception area and sign in visitors, sign for deliveries, get messages to students and generally help out wherever possible. The day before Senior Presentation Evening is the day that the student receptionists are given the cups to polish. For some reason, give a 12 year old an opportunity to roll up their sleeves and get dirty and they are happy as a pig in ... clover. So when I gave them the cups, dusters, rubber gloves and a tin of 'Silvo' their eyes lit up!
