This weekend was a good one. We had a little rain, lots of dance lessons and lots of longing for cooler temperatures. Even though the sky looked menacing for most of the day on Saturday and we were swept away by a very strong wind while it rained, the temperature was back to uncomfortably hot by Sunday.
The best part of the weekend (for me) was Saturday night, when I unexpectedly ended up at the opera. The last time I took part in an opera was three years ago and I haven’t attended regular choir practice for the past two years. I miss it terribly and I spend the whole opera choking back the tears. I also spent the whole time lip-synching to the opera (Turandot being one of my all-time favourites) and trying to keep my breathing steady. Because on stage was my very best friend, my soul sister. She shone in her part, as she always does, but seeing her perform is always a gut-wrenching experience for me. I needn’t have worried…she’s a true star and I’m so so proud of her!
I’ll leave you with a few images from this weekend, hoping yours was filled with happy moments and some excitement too.
The girls have been wearing their wellies most of the time. As I said, we’re a little desperate for some cold.
