Writing – and the sound of hippos with beer caps on their feet

02 Nov

I’ve been flat out working and writing recently and have neglected this poor little blog. Sorry, darling.

Oh, and the constant round of doing things with my darling daughter. Like dance lessons – how adorable and annoying can they be? Answer: limitless. We’re not allowed to see what the kids are up to in the ballet/tap class so we are guessing what they’re up to by the noise coming out of the studio. Some bits I imagine are very sweet. The tap dancing is, um, interesting. Pleasingly they are improving their timing and the taps are somewhat more rhythmic and sounding less like hippos with beer caps on their hooves. It was nice to see what the kids do at the mid-year recital although the hall where the recital was held was really quite cold (annoyance at that was mitigated by the relative briefness of most items, though).

Coming up in November is the annual dance concert. DD will be in costume and will do something sweet, I imagine. I hope, anyway. I have of course invited close relatives. I will, as usual, pay for photos (here’s hoping they’re considerably better than the ones taken at the mid-year recital). I will, probably, bring cotton wool to put in my ears depending upon how the sound system goes. And maybe slip a pre-mixed G&T into a water bottle for a swig at strategic times. (OK, probably kidding on that one.)
