It was recently brought to my attention that some people out there actually read this from time to time, which made me think I should probably post something. There’s only so long a most recent post called ‘Choirfest!’ can maintain an illusion of being interesting, and five months is probably pushing it a bit, so here’s May to September in a nutshell (I’m sure there’s a programme title in there somewhere…)
Zumba and Body Combat, once the mainstay of my weekday evenings, have somewhat fallen by the wayside – they served me well, were great fun, but ultimately couldn’t compete with my new hobby of collecting choirs. No longer content with only my work choir to keep me in my Soprano-ing habit, I’ve now added Sororitas and Sing and Inspire‘s SUPERCHOIR (capitals compulsory) to the list. They’re both very different – sheet music v lyric sheets; piano v backing tracks; female v mixed voice; Monday v Wednesday – and both very fun. For me, anyway – whether my neighbours are finding it quite so enjoyable listening to me practice harmonies at any given moment is possibly another matter, but I’m going to go with ‘yes’!
In other news, I’m also an Ambassador for Ty Hafan. I don’t get diplomatic immunity status, but I do get an ID card, a pin badge, a lot of gratitude and that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you’re doing something nice for charity So far this year I’ve donated to them, run for them, eaten sweets sold in aid of them (therefore completely negating any health benefits I might otherwise have experienced from running for them) and am currently helping to put together a cookbook for them. Turns out, making a book is a) hard work, b) somewhat time consuming and c) quite slow going. How any books ever make it into bookcases is a mystery to me. This one will though. I’ve said it on the internet now, so it has to.
Oh – I’ve also gone red. The site, that is, not my hair. Yet. Maybe. Perhaps.
