National Make Lunch Count Day was founded by some American chain restaurant I’ve never been to, as a gimmicky marketing ploy to up their lunch sales.
Somehow, this campaign weaselled it’s way into my blog concept and had the powers of manipulation over me to make me renegotiate my whole day’s itinerary.
I was at the elementary school practicum placement and discovered that one of my client/children wouldn’t be attending today’s session and thus I would have an extended lunch break
Yippee skippee – was I ever gonna make lunch count today

I absolutely adored her- may she live forever
