This year my best and worst gift is the same thing. It is a pottery bird whistle bought from the eisteddfod by one of my pupils when she visited there recently. One of the ones that you fill with water so that it warbles as well as whistles when you blow into it. It is my best present because my (Grandad) had one of these in his house when I was a little girl and I used to love being allowed to play with it and it makes me nostalgic. It is also something that didn't cost much and was picked out by the child herself. However it is also the worst because when I took it home, my 5 year old latched onto it and has been making a God-awful racket with it ever since (and annoying my OH in the process)...Ooops!
