Dress rehearsal for the choir Christmas concert on Saturday. After sorting out logistics, how to wear our new red scarves,how many chairs to set out, how best to manage black folders and carol books, a full rehearsal of the program of readings and songs. It didn't go well and the more our singing technique and mistakes were criticized the worse our singing became! Left the venue feeling disheartened so can only hope the performance is better on the night. On the positive side our house guest of two months has left to spend Christmas with his family so I can revert to my usual practice of eating breakfast in my pajamas! A visit from our son in the evening cheered me up too.
