Today was a bit emotional: two of my foreign students – two brothers – went home this morning. Over the years I have had dozens of teenagers and I I’ve liked most of them, some more than others, so I’m used to seeing them go.
But these two were special. They were lovely, funny, polite, and above all, incredibly sweet. I really got attached to them and this morning there were tears all around which does not happen very often.
A couple of days ago they asked me for a broom and asked if the could also use the hoover as they wanted to leave the room clean and tidy for me (I did say they were very sweet). Now, I have been hosting students for 11 years – mainly boys and mainly teenagers – so I do know that their idea of “clean and tidy” is not always the same as mine but, when I went upstairs this morning, I had to laugh….
To be fair, all this is far from unusual and it wouldn’t be THAT funny except for the fact that I did hear them hoovering for a VERY long time a couple of nights ago!
The one thing that left me scratching my head is this:
Anyone has any idea what I could do with it? I don’t want to waste food as it wouldn’t be very frugal.
