The vicar has been so happy since Miss Enid has arrived in St. Hilary's. So as it is Valentine's Day AND a Sunday today he has bought her a very special present to demonstrate how happy he is to have her at St. Hilary's. The children are celebrating Valentine's Day in their own way too and this involves some of them making thier very OWN Valentine's Day cards...........................find out how this year's Valentine's Day progresses here.........
|The vicar is so thrilled here as he gives
Miss Enid her special Valentine's Day present.
As you can see he has wrapped it up in lovely red tissue paper.......after all the present IS special!
Miss Enid is so thrilled with her new matching
pair of gloves and purse as her old ones WERE looking a bit worse for
The vicar is telling her that the tradition of giving a pair of gloves to a special friend pre-dates Victorian times so he thought it would be a great idea to resurrect the tradition in St. Hilary's!
He has even got her a Valentine's Day card too.........
|What is going
The children have asked Esther, their Sunday School teacher, if she would let them make Valentine's Day cards this morning.
Of course Esther is very happy to let them!
Find out who they are making them for.........and first up is.....Robert Alexander...
Alexander says that he doesn't really like girls very much because he
prefers to play with boys...........especially football!
However he DOES have a favourite girl.........can you guess who she is?.................well it is none other than his beloved pet dog, Georgie of course........
So Robert Alexander is making Georgie a card to tell her how much he loves her................find out how well he does in a mo.............but first let's see how Gracie is doing........
Ahhhhh.............can you guess WHO her card is
for..................there is a clue here........................again
find out in a mo because we must see what Priscilla Jane is doing with the
card SHE is making.
You can see that Priscilla Jane has nearly finished her
card.............wonder WHO it is for and what has she
written...................we will find out in a minute....
Meanwhile can you see that Eric has joined Grace as she is in the process of finishing her card. He is SO enjoying his visit to Daffodil Green isn't he?
|Whilst some of the children are
making Valentine's Day cards Miss Enid is preparing to spring a
lovely "thank you surprise" on the vicar for the present of a pair of
gloves and purse he gave her earlier on today.......
You can see a beautiful bone china tea service here....it is Miss Enid's very own and she has brought it to church today especially for this surprise........however Miss Enid only has the teapot lid.....where is the pot?
|HERE it is!
Ambrose has offered to fill the tea pot up out of the urn on the trolley.
Note that Grace has brought some "Gracie Cakes" to be shared in church
because everyone loves them so much.
is making the tea Robert Alexander has given his "favourite girl",
Georgie, his pet dog, her Valentine's Day card. She is thrilled with
it of course but is a little sad as she is not able to draw a card for him
too! Poor Georgie!
Sepp the rat and Snowy the mouse enjoy watching all that is going on. Can you also see Magnifi-Cat sitting in his basket under the stairs?
|We can now see
who Priscilla Jane has made a card for. It is her special school friend,
Zac, who sits next to her in class. She SO wants him to join St. Hilary's
Sunday School and come to church so she has made him a card to tell him
how much Jesus loves him. SHE likes him "a lot", as she
will admit to her friends in private, but she thinks that she will wait
til she is a "grown up" before she has a "proper boyfriend"!!
Grace too has finished her card.........and it is for none other than......GP! Of course poor GP.....he is trying SO hard to climb up her skirt to see it! Can you see what she has written..............."I luv GP lots and lots"!
|Miss Enid makes
sure that she has hold of her new gloves and purse when the vicar comes
over for his cup of tea out of Miss Enid's very own
bone china tea service.
|As you can see.......this
is a very beautiful tea service...........and she has even brought along
her very own silver teaspoons too so that
the vicar can stir his tea with one! She LOVES TyPhoo tea and has
also brought her own packet to be sure Ambrose remembers to use it!
Miss Enid has marked Valentine's Day with a special single rose that she bought and put in a vase especially for the vicar to see!
over as he sees Miss Enid try to reach for the teapot to pour out the
vicar's tea. He wants to be there in case she needs him to pour it
instead as he could see that she is struggling to reach ...
Ambrose is such a kind boy.
|Grace is so
proud of the card she has made for GP she is showing it off to Miss
Grace is entranced by the beautiful tea servce and Miss Enid sees this. She is promising Grace that she will remember to take her and some of the other children who are interested on a special visit to "Aunt Sal's Teas" which is next door to the church for a special "high tea" one day soon.
Grace is so looking forward to that.........and she also now wonders........would "Aunt Sal's Teas" want to have some of her "Gracie Cakes" to sell for one of her favourite charities or church funds?
