I’ve been super busy with new songs for the Rockits (I currently have 23 song ideas to try in my possibles folder) and also making a start on the Think Pink set, with a couple of festival songs thrown in. I try so many songs, more don’t make it to verse 2, than do! Shakira’s, Try Everything, is shaping up to possibly be our new, Up (Oli Murs). Most surprising thing of all is that Capaldi beats Sheeran more recently! I tried Sheeran’s, The Boat (cute), but it got drab and I got bored, so I moved on to Capaldi’s, Forget Me – much better! We are also doing another Birdy, Keeping Your Head Up. Hearties are learning Labrinth’s, Jealous – I’m interested to see how this evolves and some more from Encanto, with, Waiting on a Miracle, which makes me want to swing my arms around and do flamenco style clapping (poor Hearties).
A few weeks back, I thought it would be nice to do a choir trip to see ABBA Voyage. I thought many would like to see it, but you need someone to go with, a way to get there and an affordable ticket! All solved after emptying our kitty and getting some help from the ABBA H.O. 78, yes, seventy-eight, of us will be singing along to, I still have faith in you, on 5th Feb., next year. Something to look forward to 🕺 🎶 xxxx
Another monogram done (that’s a joke Liz and I share), in which I get to have what’s left of my original bust on the left side, squished into a giant Perspex vice. Once you’ve been put in a very unnatural, contorted position, knees bent, head twisted, one arm draped around the machine, the other behind your back, the plates flatten your entire boob into what appears to be a naan bread. I start fancying a curry for dinner… what the hell is wrong with me? As I’m told to hold my breath, I’m wondering if I’ve got any mango chutney in the fridge…. Then a lung function test in Canterbury, which took ages. I did the absolute best I could with my pitiful lungs as I didn’t want to keep repeating tests; the clock was ticking and it was lunchtime in Cotes!
Rufus can now ride his new bike with stabilisers. Rex has a red sports car (which doesn’t do many to the gallon). Maxon & Ivy enjoyed a day at the seaside, Finn got a special school award and Noah has started pulling himself up to stand and is crawling Xxxxxx
