And the Band Played On….
Well actually, they did not, all the gear was packed up after a nearly 4 hour end of week concert. All the goodbyes last night got a bit emotional for me, gulp ..quite normal for me to have a little blub and then not be able to stop….can’t keep it in…7 days of being with all these lovely staff and students for 12 hours a day and then messing up my verse in the last big piece didn’t help ( Possibly only SS and DC noticed). So cried all the way home on the tube, but as it was nearly midnight on a friday night and most people were a bit past their best (putting it politely) and as I kept all snorting and wheezing inside, no-one noticed, I just looked a bit allergic or gin ridden, so blended in quite nicely. So this morning I am missing them all and will be until the next new thing kicks in, which is in about 10 minutes.
I hold special place in my heart for my Guildhall chums, right next to all my singers and wish them well for the year to come, and hope that maybe I shall see some of them sooner. Now where is that train ticket?

SONG OF THE DAY – SILLY GAMES – JANET KAY
Nothing to do with the last week. I heard it really late when I got home and it hit a chord of nostalgia. Blimey she sings a top C in this…tried it ..but a bit too early in the morning. Love the video!
