New paragraph 

My new year starts this week. The Boywonder flew back to Montreal on Sunday armed with cornet and trumpet this time, and already has a busy programme of Fight Band rehearsals and gigs ahead. People ask me how I cope with missing him. Truth is that I don’t, really. Just thinking about how much I miss him makes my eyes well so the only way to handle the loss is by making myself think of something else. After a few weeks I’m usually accustomed to his absence but this year is going to be different and, I anticipate, much more difficult. You see Eliza’s final year at school starts tomorrow. We’ll have the flurry of university visits and applications to contend with as well as the sudden onset of A level work. We’ll be making sure that the level of learning support offered by the school matches her needs.

I have another performance of Brahms’ German Requiem and then our choir concert will be of Rutter’s Requiem at the end of October. Then there are a couple of trips to see mum in India and, an important singing event about which I shan’t be saying much until it’s...

Another rite of passage

Eliza passed her driving test today, at the first attempt. It was twice as long as a normal test as they became stuck in traffic following an accident halfway through the test. I must emphasise that Eliza was in no way connected with the accident. It’s been quite a week for Eliza, who received an AS level result yesterday too, which should be a good basis for next year’s real A levels. I must say that I was far more nervous about the driving test than about the exam. It’s a big thing: her independence. Photo creds: James...

I was lucky enough to be invited to the fabulous wedding of @emproji and @lukephilosophy last weekend. Agonising about what to wear, I came across this gorgeous dress from Bombshell. Even better news: they had my size and it was reduced! It would have been rude not to!

I know these doors are supposed to be the ultimate in high security but I despise them. I mean look how ugly they are! White UPVC, no definite sense of style nor era and the opening is both tiny and a trip hazard. How on earth are you supposed to… [more]
