Laidlaw North Christmas Meal
5th December, 2018
Disappointed to discover that our regular haunt of Little Italy in Penicuik, which had served us so well for the last couple of years, had closed down, it was with a keen sense of anticipation that we boarded the bus to head to Mia Italian Kitchen in Morningside. And what a feast awaited us! Agreeing to put on an ‘all-you-can-eat’ buffet for over 50 teenage boys is always a rather dicey undertaking, but this establishment were more than up to the task. There was more pizza and pasta than you could shake a stick at and the sides of chips, antipasti, olives and tomatoes disappeared with terrifying speed. Once the boys had had their fill another feast appeared- a cake kindly brought in by Kaan’s parents to mark his 17th birthday!
Finally, it seemed right to use this festive occasion to thank the House tutors for all their hard work- Miss Mullan, Ms Stewart, Mrs Hardman, Mr Harrison and Mr Newham, thank you very much for all your help this term!
We left Mia happy, satisfied and away to sleep off the food coma ahead of the Cup Final.
