How Thoughtful!

It is the tradition in many workplaces for people to bring in cakes to share with colleagues when it is their birthday. The school where I do Supply Teaching is no different.

The one male teacher on the staff had a ‘significant’ birthday in the Christmas Holidays. Instead of bringing in cakes, we found a stack of boxes on the table in the staffroom.

Thanks Lee for sharing your birthday in a great, non-fattening way!

someone put the kettle on, please!


  1. What a fantastic idea! It has all the 'what shall I choose?' elements of a box of chocs but none of the guilt..:) Jx

  2. What a thoughtful idea! As I continue to try to lose weight, one of the habits I want to get into is having a cup of tea when the urge to eat hits. Oftentimes I just want a little something nice, and tea hits the spot.
