The Holy Trinity performance of It’s A Baby yesterday evening to parents and grandparents was wonderful. Every key stage 1 child (age 5-7) was involved and Imi was one of several narrators. Imi said her lines very clearly, even though she was sniffly with cold and croaky with cough. At the closing song, Imi’s forcefully quick shaking of her maraca with a very serious little face seemed to say “hurry up and finish, I've had enough”. The little tiff on stage between two angels was priceless!
We had dry weather this year for Marlow’s late night shopping event and there was even a bit of a buzz in the air. It’s a good opportunity for us to show our appreciation to our regular customers and to meet some new ones along the way. Barbara Turner’s homemade mulled wine was even more delicious this year and the aroma filled the shop with Christmas spirit (no pun intended).

We visited my sister Jane and husband Martin in Cheshire last weekend. We were really impressed with our tour of the new Cheshire Contemporary Arts building where Jane is a Principle Lecturer & Martin is Programme Leader for Creative Music Production. (www.mmu.ac.uk/ (go to toMMU opens new state of the art building). Two of Jane's dedicated students had slept in the theatre space overnight working on a project & the recording studios were amazing. - a world away from Turners. Imi had a great time making finger puppets with Jane, fun on the xylophone and meeting Bev & John's velevety soft greyhounds.

Went skiing with Matthew English to the Snow Centre at Hemel Hempstead. Brilliant skiing on real snow. We were lucky to go in the week so not too busy. It was great fun and really hope we can get to the mountains next year. Chocolate cookie and the cup of costas not bad either. Thanks for the recommendation Thalia.
