An apple for the teacher

by Helen Hooker September. 01, 2018 606 views

Traditionally, if you wanted to get in your school teacher’s good books the gift to present to them was an apple. That said, I was never presented with one through twenty years of teaching in schools, so perhaps it’s just an old wives’ tale! This week though I was presented with something pretty close to the mythical apple – a huge bag of plums. One of my pupils has a glut of them at the moment, from the trees around her stable, so she’s gifting them to anyone who likes plums and I certainly wasn’t going to say no. Plums bought from the supermarket are often under-ripe and quite hard but these are the exact opposite, juicy and sweet. I can see I’ll be grazing on these every time I walk past our fruit bowl!

Be careful with your digestion after the huge bag of plums.
