So, what have I been up to?
Well, I joined a choir!
Random hey?! Well, kind of. Music was a huge part of my school career. I started playing the recorder when I was 7, and pestered my primary school teacher to do classes in it. Yes, really! I taught myself by picking up my sister’s old recorder and learning from pictures in books! It then spiraled into violin lessons. Then clarinet. Piano. Flute. Then evolved into then taking music for GCSE and being part of the choirs and orchestra. That ended almost 16 years ago when I went to college. 16 years! Wow.
Anyway, my taste buds were tickled when Gareth Malone kept popping up on the scene. Not that that’s a bad thing, I have a soft spot for him! More to the point, when he did the Military Wives Choir. I looked for local choirs back then, and none appealed. Until recently! A small, local choir. I was so nervous on my first rehearsal! I haven’t done the whole ‘joining thing’ since school (jobs don’t count!), But I was instantly welcomed. And I truly do love the little choir family that we have.
I have been there 2 months now, and love it. The Christmas concert is fast approaching, and competitions next year! 🙂
Anyway, to keep this blog kinda on trend of pretty things, I happened to nose on Yours Clothing’s website tonight and was greeted by the lovely Scarlett & Jo‘s new dresses! I immediately bought the cranberry velvet dress. Everyone needs velvet in their wardrobe! Especially when the Christmas parties start!
I can’t wait for this to arrive!
