I have a very busy Christmas period with my brass band, but I’m not the only one performing carols at this time of year. My wife Jo sings with an amateur choir in West Bridgford called ‘The Tuesdays’, and they had a concert tonight. The event was raising money (over £200!) for the Alzheimer’s Society and went very well indeed.
Ruby got on stage (with most of the other children present) to help Jo with Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer, while I got to press play on the backing track CD for a few of the pieces. I always wanted to be a roadie.
We had mulled wine and mince pies afterwards, as is traditional, while the children ran around like loons, high on sugary treats.
