So where are we then?

We had a week's holiday from work across our anniversary - which was really special. We mostly stayed home but it was nice to be together.

The car passed it's MOT with flying colours which was a bonus. We wrote music, we gardened, we had a day at the seaside, we mucked about in town - all in all it was a very relaxing break. We visited our tree on our anniversary - it's now around 8ft tall!

Yesterday I filled in for the usual girl who sings when our recorder group play. So as well as playing bass I also sang. For the record I sang The Spirit's Song by Haydn, the recitative and aria Awake Saturnia/Hence Iris Hence from Handel's Semele, The Seguedilla from Carmen, Voi Che Sapete from the Marriage of Figaro and the Alleluia from Mozart's Exsultate Jubilate (made the top note too!). Got some very nice compliments and managed to control my nerves a great deal better.

My daughter has a theory that I only become nervous when I'm not playing a part - so comedy numbers and the band are a breeze - but when I sing classical music it's just me, which is what leads to nerves.

On a more serious note, my ex-mother-in-law is in hospital. She's 84. I've known her for such a long time and I still call her 'Mum' even though I'm no longer married to her son. And she is the daughter's Nana. Today she was brighter than she has been for a while but she is very unwell. Prayers and good thoughts would be appreciated.
