Suitcase Singers, Dancing for One Billion Rising and Valentine Baking

1    First it was singing which was wonderful! Beautiful choir-babies, all buns sold, I met A, the baby I showed you yesterday and we learned Snow Patrol’s ‘Chasing Cars’ a capella (as all our singing is) in four parts – hard work, great fun and very satisfying indeed  and afterwards……

2    We danced! We were some of the One Billion Rising protest that invited women all over the world to dance today to highlight violence against women and we danced in the Jubilee Wharf Courtyard outside Miss Peapod’s Cafe.

3   This afternoon  I’ve baked the most amazing cakes using fresh eggs, brought to choir this morning by G, as he does each week.  He also brought, especially for me, some beetroot which he pulled up only this morning as I had mentioned last night that I wanted to try making a Chocolate and Beetroot Cake for Valentine’s Day. How much fresher a cake could you have? I’ll put the recipe up later if anyone would like it. It’s so delicious and moist and very chocolatey! If I hadn’t told about the beetroot, no one would guess!

Les Miserables was brilliant! We all enjoyed the film enormously.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my readers!
