Journal Your Christmas: 13th December


The school Christmas concert was extremely festive - a great atmosphere. I played with Camerata - A slightly ropey Walking in the Air, a clipping Christmas medley and Handel's Alleluia from the Messiah with the choir. In the second half, I watched, along with some ladies who hummed along to all the performances white noisily unwrapping mint humbugs - brilliantly cliched! Particularly amused by the piece which combines, in medley form, your favourite Christmas tunes with your favourite secret agent film and TV themes. To finish, we had singalong carols and I did the descants (Yay!). The boys in front turned round to locate the source of the noise and I surepticiously pointed at Arijit. They appeared somewhat bemused :D

I made this page on a gold holly-patterned transparency which I found in my stash from last year. I love rediscovering something pretty and using it!

P.S. School quiz today - a team from each year and my staff team. I've baked them biscuits and one or two for the hopefully susceptible judges in the 6th form. You never know when a biscuit may become a delicious tie-break biscuit.

P.P.S. Also I have lots of specific knowledge but no general knowledge so I'm playing to my strengths. It's what I tell the students to do. Fingers crossed!

  1. Bribing 6th Form judges. That's low. Very low. But it might just work :) Best of luck!

  3. Your description of the "mint humbug ladies" is priceless! I'm loving reading the stories in your JYC. As a US-based Brit, I'm being taken back to some lovely memories. You are possibly making me a tad homesick, but I'll forgive you for that! :)
