Choir this morning, our last practice before the dress rehearsal and concert next week. An intensive rehearsal with a tense choir master, always the way so close to performance. An advent calendar from my German penfriend arrived in the post, a lovely surprise! Reading an absorbing ghostly thriller, a token amount of ironing, then a trip to the vet as our beautiful cat had a fit this morning. After a thorough examination she was booked in for blood tests tomorrow.
