So we came back from Rome late Thursday, and on Friday we hosted the choir movie night!
Dale kindly recorded the entire Easter Concert last year, including our lovely soloist, and everyone was keen to see how we sounded and looked. Our barn projector screen comes into its own on such occasions, so I spent Friday afternoon moving furniture around so that we could provide seating for 20, sorting crockery, glasses etc and making a big chilli. Jo came round with a vegetarian curry and more trimmings, and we managed to get everything up and running in time for the choir.
It was a fun evening in the end, the video was good (and made us more aware of the importance of smiling as we sing!) and the food and drink likewise. Lots of washing up but we also kept the dregs of the booze, so I have been cooking with wine the last few days!
Rosie drove down to Somerset to pay a visit to Granna and Grandad, who had promised her a stay for her 21st birthday last year. She had a lovely time and came back with their present to her, this bust, which is the perfect room accessory:
Meanwhile Martin is in India so missing his daughter and working very hard. I plan to whisk him over to Normandy for a long weekend if he is feeling well enough on his return. Fingers crossed.
