Sick as a parrot ...

The home CC went really well but I've been so ill since. Mum says it's a rather drastic way to diet! I'm back at work today but still not eating properly :(

'Cyber' Crop

DD and I prepared our kits over the weekend so we are now ready for two days of scrapping :)

I've sourced classes from UKS CCs and Fairies with 'tude. DD picked the class names out of a hat and we have planned one every 90mins. I've given each class a score and DD gets 1.5 times the points if she has no help. Hopefully this will encourage her to just get on with it and leave me to scrap too.

Home 'CC'

It's half term next week and I've two days off with DD. Between us we have decided to have our own Cyber Crop. So I've printed the pdfs from old UKS CCs and I've prepared a supply list for each class.

Tuesday we will be getting our kits together and Wednesday we are having our CC. I'm really looking forward to it :)

Different Focus ...

Well I am using my new 2007 word but in a completely different direction to that intended. Following a school advert requesting people to join the parent's choral society I signed up and started practicing Faure's Requim. I love this work and realised how much I'm missing my singing. At last weeks rehersal flyers were put out about a concert of Karl Jenkin's Armed Man.
I know very little of this work - I love 'Palladio' and DH bought me a compilation of Jenkin's work which had this track and 3 tracks from the Armed Man. I liked them and couldn't believe a local choir was singing it. Anyway the end shot is I've joined that choir too and now sing twice a week. The school concert has about 6 rehersals and the Jenkins concert only 4! Plus at the first Jenkin's rehersal another choir in Prestbury were asking for people to join a singing day - this could spiral and loose focus but atm I'm really enjoying myself.
