  1. Well Christmas is now hurtling towards us at a great rate of knots, so I just wanted to say to those of you for whom I have no addresses that I hope you have a lovely Christmas.

    Held our Carol Concert yesterday and it was a joy to sing. We had a children's choir with us as well (always guarantees a good audience as parents/grandparents/younger siblings and cuddly toys all come to see their little darlings). A group of handbell ringers did their stuff too and it was all rather jolly.

    I had arrived in Nantwich for afternoon rehearsal expecting the car parking it to be hellish - which it was - but joy of joys a white van was pulling out of a space just as I arrived - Yay! - result. We had an almost magical moment of silent communication with me inside my car and him inside his van. He obviously saw my face light up and did a thumbs up to me and gave me a big smile - obviously reading my thoughts. Made me laugh out loud and we both grinned at each other in total companionable harmony..... I shall never make derogatory remarks about 'white van man' again!

    Rehearsal went swimmingly - even our conductor said he was frightened - it was so good he was fearful it might all go wrong at the actual concert!, but several hours later when we were doing the actual thing we sang our best, the audience joined in lustily where they were required and many cuddly toys jigged about in time with the music! How absolutely lovely.

    So - good wishes to all of you. Eat and drink lots of naughties, hope you receive all the prezzies you would like....and that someone else will do all the washing up!

    Fond love, Brenda xx

    I would like to wish everyone in the guild a very happy Christmas, especially to all those I met this year at Swindon and Leicester. In particular Rachel, Christine, Brenda, Nancy and Francis and anyone I may have forgotten.
