I have three jokes to share with you today…

What starts with P and ends with E, and has a thousand letters?

How do you make Lady Gaga cry?

Why is Santa so good at karate?

Three wise women

The Christmas story talks about three wise men following a star for days to get to the stable.

Now, had there been three wise WOMEN, they would have stopped to get directions, arrived on time to help tidy the stable and deliver the baby, bought along some cold meats and salad, and brought gifts such as nappies, face washers and sheets!

Teacher gifts

As a teacher, I often get a number of gifts from students. Everyone of those gifts is appreciated for the thought and the message it conveys, but I have to say that not all of them are wanted.

I mean, little soaps are cute but not so practical in a house with 3 boys and I’m actually allergic to chocolate (yes I know it is shocking) And I’ve noticed that female teachers never get given wine! (I wonder if female coaches, leaders, etc find the same thing???)

So I was VERY pleased today to get a gift from my class – not each child, but a class gift organised by a parent or two. They gave me a voucher for a massage and a bottle of moisturiser – a perfect way to relax at the end of the year and very thoughtful.

It’s probably too late for this year, but if you are thinking of a gift for a teacher/leader/coach consider getting something as a group – the recipient is likely to appreciate it and it may even be cheaper than buying something yourself.

And for anyone who does want to organise a group gift, I came across a site that may be useful – Chip In manages the payments from everyone in the group.
