Yes, I'm still here! Sighing with relief because it is half term here.. no morning rush for a whole week! And we are going to London later in the week - yay!! Not sure what we'll do there, seeing a show of some sort and going out for meals are definitely on the list...and of course I want to take photos... not sure what else... museums, sightseeing? - suggestions welcome...

I stepped into a musical time warp at church yesterday morning - singing songs I had not sung for about ten years or more....and you know, there was a reason those songs had faded from popularity!! - I hope this not an experience which is going to be regular feature!!!

There is a momentary lull in the flow of emails too! - it won't last... it can't really, too much of what I do happens there!

Meanwhile the days are lengthening, the sun is just a little warmer - maybe I'll come out of hibernation soon!!!

Half term sounds like a very good idea. But our terms are too short for that here.

-singing songs I had not sung for about ten years or more....and you know, there was a reason those songs had faded from popularity!!
I feel like that sometimes if I strike something we sang when I was little like Soul of my Saviour! You just want to lie down and groan!

This term is very, very short because Easter is so early this year, but generally I prefer 3 terms with half term to 4 term years.

We do sing plenty of older songs and I have no problem with that... it was just these songs!!

I preferred three terms. Ours are such a rush.

I know I found four terms really difficult organisationally... I hope the UK doesn't change, I know they have considered it!

London is full of loads of interesting places.
Go to the Piccadilly Circus tourist info booth, or go to Oxford circus on the central line and ask for a CCA. There is a guy there called Gerry who knows London very well - which paintings are in what galleries, where to go for classical music concerts at the cheapest prices, and where some really good restaurants are. Gerry is seriously reckoned to be one of the best CCAs on the network. Some say he *is* the best on the network...

What does CCA stand for? I'm sure Gerry would know that.
