Boys and girls I was so surprised and delighted to find your special delivery on Friday. I am so sorry that I wasn’t in when Jacob and his Mum brought it round. I was volunteer shopping for someone.

I absolutely LOVE my beautiful gifts. How thoughtful of you all to organise this for me. I love the exquisite heart necklace, it will go with so many of my outfits. It has been much admired on my Facebook page and on Zoom chats already.

I adore scented candles especially once the nights start to get darker. I look forward to burning the geranium and rose petal one.

And I am hugely looking forward to sampling some Cocoa Black treats. I will take friends once the café is open again or I might get take-aways (when they open for those) to share with friends in a garden visit.

I LOVE the beautiful flower bouquet from Stems. Wow! It is brightening up my conservatory, where I spend lots of time in the summer. The flowers are gorgeous.

And I LOVE the card. It is so bright and cheerful.

Boys and girls I have loved being your teacher. I am sorry that we didn’t get to have a full year together because of the virus. Please say hello when you see me around Peebles. I love to hear how my past pupils are getting on.

I have many happy memories of our time together. How could I forget “Lights,  Camels, Action” or your amazing Charles Rennie Mackintosh artwork.  Thank you for being so enthusiastic to learn, so thoughtful of each other and so hard working.

I will hopefully still come to KPS occasionally to teach and I look forward to seeing you then. Have a wonderful summer. YOU are all STARS
