Each year, these lovely teachers of Ruby's class host a Mother's Day Spa on the preceding Friday.
Treatments on offer included nail painting, hand and shoulder massage and a chance to read a book or play a game with my daughter.
Refreshments were provided in the form of decorated biscuits and iced tea, hand-delivered.
It was a precious chance to spend an hour with my daughter in her classroom. Of late I've been absent from school more than I would like.
I got to sit and chat with other mums, share laughter over the colour and state of our nail polish, smile at the children's excitement and enjoy the beautiful song performed at the end.
