We managed a rehearsal in the park yesterday, sitting on huge rough wooden chairs carved out of tree trunks, with two lads who were revising for their accountancy exams under the trees as our audience.
We were worried about disturbing them, but they told us they liked it and they came over for a discreet listen at one point.
Assorted dog-walkers, joggers and skateboarders smiled as they went past and it was cool in the shade, which made it and ideal spot for a harmony and a melody to settle together.
Song Club has made a rough recording- we are performing at Assembly tomorrow, so if the children can manage not to pinch each other for five minutes, we might get there. They are amazing actually and as always they have jumped on board and are roaring along in full energy mode.
I have made some cakes for the launch tomorrow- they were meant to be sweet little things but they are lumpy and mis-shapen and the big heart cake broke into pieces because I made it in an old cake tin and it got stuck. However, i am not superstitious, and as far as the little lumpies are concerned, a spot of creative icing will do the trick. The big broken heart will last for nanoseconds once Offsprog One returns home tomorrow, so all is good.
I went to the dentist today and I didn't even cry!
So, hope to see you tomorrow at:
The Perseverance, 11 Shroton street, Marylebone
Music starts at 8.30
It's £8.00 to get in
We will have CDs, badges, and... cakes (unless I eat them all first: I've had three already!)
