Sorry this is just one of my winter wonderland photos. It should be one of a heart bursting with pride.
Last night l went to the 'Ayrshire Schools for ~Christmas' concert at The Palace Theatre in Kilmarnock. The place was packed and it was wonderful to see the massed choirs on the stage (children had been chosen from each school to sing in their own choirs and then one huge choir assembled). The kids had been practicing for months but had only come together for one practice on the day of the concert.
I sat next to my friend Naomi and must admit we didn't expect the entertainment and joy that was produced from the stage. Those kids were amazing, and there was my Idgy in there singing her heart out and loving it. If only my fingers could type out the sheer joy and pride that l felt when l heard them. It was one of those ever so rare fireworks and chocolates moments, a fabulously wrapped package just bursting forth with fun and happiness. Those children sang so well, you would be forgiven for thinking that they must have practiced together for months to get all their harmonies and different parts and levels correct, amazingly they did it in one afternoon.
What a night.
