Holidays

Funny how you keep going as long as you have to and then just when the holidays are in sight, you go down with a bug!

I was going to go and sing on Palm Sunday at Chipping Campden in their “Sing-along-a-Stainer Crucifixion” – but I had a bad throat all the week before and by Sunday, had lost my voice completely. Bugger!

I have spent the first week of Easter Holiday trying to catch up on all those little things which don’t get done in term-time (including housework!!) – I’ve finished cataloguing my CDs (until I buy some more!) and I’ve catalogued the DVDs which are starting to accumulate. As I write this, it is Easter Monday and I am listening to the countdown in the Hall of Fame on CLASSIC FM – so much gorgeous music packed into 4 days….just heard Allegri Misere, followed by Shostakovich 2nd Piano Concerto, followed by Bach Double Violin Concerto, followed by Rodrigo Concierto de Aranjuez – all would be among my top choices.

So how am I supposed to tear myself away and put the vacuum cleaner on? AH! so THAT’s what adverts are for!!
