What a nice way to end the week...

This morning we had Harvest festival at Steven's school... I had a few phone calls and bills to pay first before picking mum up (which was nice as it was the first time she came to anything at school since dad died)...

Well they were doing a raffle, thinking about it, I never asked what the prize is, but how much they are, so I can see how many I can afford, lol...

The service was lovely, they had 4 really pretty flower arrangements in autumn colours, and some of the donations already on display, we sang/signed songs and pupils from each class took some of their harvest goodies up to add to the display...They did a slide show of where the donations were going to, which were for the local homeless and a special school in Ghana...

The head then announced the prize winners of the 4 flower displays and I was one of the lucky people, lol...so here are my lovely flowers that now look fab on my fire grate



Did offer them to my mum, but she declined as she still has some carnations I bought her last week... also she was catching a bus to see my sister, (I couldn't give her a lift as I had yet another meeting at the school after the harvest festival), but guess what I've got 2 weeks free of appointments, hooray, next week because Steven is off to Butlins at Bognor Regis with the school and the following week is half term...

So bliss..... till he goes back on the 2nd November when they all start again, starting with 3 college visits in that first week with the connexions officer...

Congratulations :)
I never win anything LOL

When Jessica was little they had a harvest festival at her school and the headmaster explained the food they had collected would be donated to help poor people.

A couple of days later someone from the school turned up at my mum and dad's house with food from the harvest - Jessica had told the teacher that her grandparents were hard up and could they have some of the donated stuff!
My mum was mortified LOL.

Congratulations Maria you deserve them! Sophie's school had a "Harvest for heros" collection and the items were being sent to the troops in Afganistan etc.
Enjoy your 2 weeks meeting free!
Hugs Alyson xx
