Now it feels like Christmas

Two reasons for the mood change.

Firstly, I’m now on holiday.

Secondly, last night we were at Dolly Daydream’s school Christmas concert. It’s rapidly becoming a highlight of the year for us. It’s held in the wonderful setting of St. John’s Kirk in Perth, which reminds me that I really must take a proper look round it one day (I’ve only lived in Perth for 20 years or so!).

Anyway, last night was full of wonderful talent, devoid of cringeworthy moments and with mere shavings of cheese. Dolly was cello-ing with the string and full orchestras and singing with senior choir.

Other highlights included the swing band – so cool that they were hot; and a reading called “A modern Corinthian”. This was based on 1 Corinthians 13, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere on the weby-net thing. If anyone has a copy …

Putting parental pride aside, the thing that sticks in my mind was right at the end of the evening. Four boys/ young men sang two verses of Silent Night unaccompanied. It’s far from a favourite of mine, but on this occasion and with this performance it seemed to be the perfect ending. Very brave of them and very well done!

It’s Christmas!!!!!!!

Lins & THM - talk about lowering the tone!

But actually ... it was in my mind at the time!
