At choir this week we started doing some Christmas carols for our informal end of term concert. One of them is We Three Kings. I'm not sure if I ever knew what the real lyrics are, but I can remember the alternative lyrics from primary school: We three kings of Orient are One in taxi,... Continue reading
Yesterday I sung at the local folk festival, along with the rest of the choir I go to. We hadn't rehearsed any of the songs since June, although I'd practised over the summer, but we had a couple of rehearsals the last two Thursdays. The first one reminded me why singing in the choir is... Continue reading

It's definitely winter - my hands are dry and have started cracking 🙁 This is even though I wear gloves whenever I'm outside or in the car, and for doing the washing up and when it's cold in the house I wear fingerless gloves. But there's only so much you can do and I'm not... Continue reading

For a bit of it seemed like a good idea at the time and still hasn't seemed like a bad one, I'm running the Sarah & Harry (with optional Sarah/Harry) ficathon. Sign-ups are open till 5th July (Ladies Finals Day). At some point I will wake up enough to post about having my tooth out... Continue reading
I have my amazon parcel! It arrived yesterday and someone had hidden it downstairs. Which is just as well because when I rang them up they promised to look into it and get back to me, which they never did. So I have now watched the whole of the Robot commentary and am now on... Continue reading
