Farewell, Choir Babies and A Field of Gold

28 Mar

1   Today was Larissa’s last singing session with us before she and her family leave for Glasgow. It was a super morning with singing, dancing and cake and a beautiful piece of art for L from all the choir, painted by one of our members, local artist Jo Short.

2   Our Choir-babies are a delight to us all and this was also T’s last time with us. We will miss his constant good humour. He has always loved the accordion and made a manful attempt to pick up the heavy case. Choir-baby E is now walking with support.

    Sally – you captured the leaving day so, so well – and T with the accordian is certainly one to keep in years to come. I was so overcome with emotion I burst into tears when I read all of the kind words in mine and T’s cards. Thank you SO much!

      It is sooo lovely to have you comment on here! I hope you’ll continue to read and comment when you are away in Glasgow!
      I have a whole heap of photos for you but our house is full of family and we’ve spent all day getting sorted for them but I will get around to sending them all to you. They’ll make a lovely collection! xx

    Oh Sally, that field of daffodils is stunning, truly stunning – the mangled tree in the foreground particularly.

    As for Glasgow, oh how I wish I could jump on a plane and see it with my own eyes. How intrigued I am…

    & Choir Baby E’s hair – his hair so shiny, just like Daniel’s!! oh, love love love 🙂

      Isn’t it magnificent? I was pleased with that shot!

      Glasgow is a brilliant city. We love it. I think L will love it.

      Choir baby E is a beauty isn’t she? Just makes my heart curl to see our Choir-babies!

      All the best to you and Daniel 🙂

    Oh that field of gold, exactly how I imagine the setting of Sting’s song 🙂
