23/365: Mrs. Bateson

I never had her as a teacher but I was her lunch monitor for a year, for which I was rewarded with a pair of musical Christmas socks for the holidays and a beach towel with a hot air balloon on it at the end of the year. She always took good care of her monitors. We never saw her husband, but he was retired, and he spent a lot of his time baking cookies for the kids at school, so much so that he achieved a kind of mythical status.
