Hands off my handbag.

It's that time of the year again, the annual teacher bashing. Once again teachers' presents have come under fire. This year the charity group Crosscare have asked that kids do not give their teachers presents, but rather they are to donate the money to them. Now I do agree that it is a very noble and worthwhile cause. Yes, they could make much better use of the money than we do of "scented candles and soaps". It's just very ironic that this is the week it was revealed, that many executives of our cash-strapped semi-state bodies were awarded bonuses of thousands of euro.
Did Crosscare ask them to donate the appreciation of their job well done? Did they heck as like!
Today was our second-last day of the school year. I received two  presents.
The first is a lovely handbag, in a neutral colour, which will go with lots of things in my wardrobe.
I love a child who knows me so well!

And the second?
It was a bottle of white wine, which I chilled as soon as I got home. It has subsequently been cracked open and I am now sipping it as I lie back on my couch watching Wimbledon!
Roll on tomorrow and holidays. I know this is going to be a great summer. I can feel it in my water!
