Tube Announcement, Cornish Daffodils and A Song

03 Feb

1   A young friend of mine heard this at Victoria tube station in London the other day –

‘Hello you shiny, happy, lovely Friday people, welcome aboard the Soul Train! Have a wonderful day!’

What a brilliant way to bring smiles to people’s faces on their morning commute. Happiness indeed!

2   These gorgeous Cornish daffodils bring smiles to us whenever we go into the kitchen. I love the reflection in the shiny surface too.

Beautiful Cornish daffodils

3    It was so good to be back at singing after being ill. We sang several of my favourites tonight including the wonderful ‘Oxygen” which you can listen to here. It was written by our own Choir leader, Claire Ingleheart, for the Suffragette play, ‘Oxygen’  performed last year here in Cornwall and all along the route of the Suffragette March from Lands End to London. Have a look at this post if you’d like to know more and if you put Suffragette in the search, all the posts will come up for you.

    People can look so depressing on the tube so I can just imagine the impact of that greeting. Hope you’re well now.

    Sorry about your illness and glad you are doing better.
    That is the kind of announcement to brighten a gloomy day

    Friday, yes, but if someone had sung that song to me on a Monday morning, I would have clocked him one, (or her.) I think kindly of Wordsworth whenever I see a host of daffs..

      I love Wordsworth’s words too. Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment. 🙂

    Where but England would you hear a station announcement like that! I’m saving my pennies to come back – if I live long enough! Takes a helluva lot of pennies from here

    What a wonderful tube driver! I bet there were smiles and laughter throughout the carriages that morning and all those people passed on his happy greeting to their friends and colleagues and made them smile too… just as you have! Fantastic!
    There’s something about daffodils that just brighten up the mood anywhere!
    Sorry to hear you’ve been ill (I’ve been awol for a bit) but glad you’re well and in full voice again! I look forward to catching up with some of your posts 🙂

      Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment. I hope by now, (sorry for the delay in replying,) that you now have some outdoor daffodils to cheer you 🙂

    What a fantastic way to start the day. A great ray of sunshine 🙂

    I think that’s awesome, and your dappy-dills are gorgeous. I hope you aren’t being flooded too much down that end.
