The lovely and extreemly helpful Helen asked me to help out with the bake sale in the school this morning.
First off can I just say that despite working in a bakery for a few months last year I have never seen so many cakes in one place before!! Every child must have brought in something. We could have created a small hill with the rice crispie buns alone.
It was all in aid of sending one of the EAL teachers to visit Unganda with a childrens charity - so a very good cause.
I dont know the final tally on the take in but its at least 700 euro - which is amazing for one mornings work.
We all of us helpers had a great time - I love the chance to get in to the school and talk to the kids like this.
Great example of the conversations ..:
I was chatting to a little guy I know from Junior Infants class .. lets call him Joe ..
Joe - My mammy made those rice crispie buns.
Me - I cant make them .. the mud never sticks to the rice crispies
Joe - NOOOOOO you have to use chocolate
Me - But then how do you get the worms in?
He had me sussed like a light ... still he gave me a lovely big cuddle before he left.
Getting back to the shoes
In my madness I had thought that I would road test the new kitten heal shoes I got for the forthcoming wedding I have to go to next week.
Sore Feet now.
