Welcoming hot (or cold) drinks, bicuits and nibbles as you arrived. Just what was needed after a long or even a short journey…there is nothing like a hot mug of tea or coffee.There was even some Ribena got in especially for me (because I unfortunately don’t drink tea or coffee.) How’s that for service?
Some of the tables were placed into small friendly groups with adult sized chairs and all were decorated with paper cloths and coloured napkins.
On one side there was a longer main table with attached round stool-like seats (shown below) that can be wheeled around from position to position or room to room. We never had anything like this when I was teaching. Would have been excellent for stopping those children who were constantly swinging backwards on their chairs and catching teacher’s legs when they were walking round the classroom checking the work or giving assistance.
I’m sure that after viewing this magnificent array of food, bought in by individuals (or money given to supply what was needed) you’ll be feeling quite hungry and heading off to the kitchen to make yourself something to eat.
Starting from one end with the savouries ……
….continuing through to the centre…..
…and heading towards the far end …….
….to the deserts and cakes.
Lastly we have Judith herself enjoying deciding just what she would like to eat. Talk about ‘Spoilt for choice!’
Right, you now have my permission to leave the computer and head off to your kitchens to get yourself a snack!
