Journal Your Christmas: 13th December

And, warping backwards through time, I come to my Christmas carols page! This is a picture of my grandma and I at a service where carols were definitely a feature! My family and I all love to sing perhaps more than is strictly necessary, especially if it means we can put in alto, tenor and bass parts and a descant over the top (yours truly). When we don't know them, we make them up. Same goes for the words. Fortunately, we know the carols pretty well and there's no need to ad lib. Much.

School finished today. It was nice - it even snowed! - and I got some fab presents from the kids but I was totally glad to end the year as I still feel pretty rubbish. Hope that everyone is also looking forward to some lovely, relaxing holiday time!

P.S. When you're ill, the sensible thing to do is stay in and rest. So I went to see The Voyage of the Dawn Treader with a friend which was definitely more fun! Plus I got to keep the 3D specs. This is only cool if you happen to be a member of my form. Which, if you're reading this, I sincerely hope you aren't. You should be...doing your homework?

  2. Hooray for the end of term! Happy holidays :-) We broke up today too, and had a heavy snowfall this evening to mark the occasion...

    I'm an alto in the choir, but I also sing the descants to the carols!!

  4. Gorgeous page - I am in awe of how you find the time to do 12x12 for Shimelle's courses ... I struggle to keep up and I don't have a full time job with 30-odd students in each class! Not that I'm saying your students are odd of course :P
