Every mother in the country is hastily buying a please don’t hate my child card and present for the teacher this week.
As shops cash in on bumper sales of Yankee candles, Boots gift sets, and wine, some mums are going to the extreme of ordering personalised thank-you stuff on-line.
Murial Hislop has spent mental money ordering a mug with a personalised message from her daughter, which should help the teacher hate her daughter a little less next term.
‘Hopefully, this £27.99 coffee cup should keep her in set 1 next year,’ said Hislop.
‘Hope the teacher has a good 9 weeks off, while I put in overtime to pay for this mug,’ added Hislop.
