Thoughtful Friday.

It’s been an emotional day!

We were up bright and early to go and visit a children’s cancer care centre. Towards the end of last year the school where I work had a big fundraising drive, ending in our boss getting waxed for charity! Anyway, we raised the equivalent of about £2500, which needless will go a very long way here. This morning was the big presentation – we spent a few hours visiting the children – colouring, singing songs and telling stories.

I was completely heartbroken all morning – some of these beautiful children are very sick, but they were so happy and excited to spend time with us.

Overall it was a very humbling experience.

This afternoon I had a final lesson with one of my favourite classes – we ate cake, took pictures and sang karaoke!

These faces were just what I needed to cheer up this girl on a gloomy Friday!
