Last weekend ORFILA played at Blackheath Village Day. We were playing outside and were kindly given red fleeces… these matched our Christmas hats. I kept referring to the face that we all looked like Santa! It was all very fun! Thank you to Tommy, Sorrelle and everybody at The Jimmy Mizen Foundation for asking us to play. Always a pleasure to work with you guys!
Also this week, all the places I teach singing at are currently putting on their Christmas shows. It’s all very exciting. The build up to Christmas is always something to look forward to! All the Christmassy songs, buying Christmas presents and decorations starting to go up… Oh it’s great! Stagecoach in Oxted put on their Christmas show and I LOVED the stage and lighting. So I took a picture… Of course I did!
I do love this time of year (as I regularly state!). YES, it’s freezing and YES, it’s not ideal when you have to sit in your car for 20 minutes whilst you wait for the ice to melt, and YES it’s painful when you can’t feel your fingers or toes… But all that goes away when you’re inside in the warm with your fluffy socks and big jumpers and hot water bottles and countless cups of tea and pretty views… Just like this one:
This was my view one morning this week on my way to teaching. It was so pretty that I thought I’d share it with you.
So, this weekend, ORFILA are playing at a Christmas Show raising money for Diabetes UK! Will post pics and info next week!
