Gandhi's policy of Non-cooperation is legendary but my family will all agree that Beauty's takes Non-cooperation to the next level.
If Beauty does not want to do something, convincing her to actually do it can be almost impossible .
Beauty's non-compliance in school concerts goes beyond even Gandhi's hard-core ideals.
For example, she spent last years concert sat in a a paddling pool on stage and the year before she sat in a giant box.
Now if I were her teacher I would be pretty peed off at this as she is the most verbal and most aware(and most obstinate!) child in the class.
She is also always singing and dancing but refuses to perform to request.
She also knows an amazing amount of Christmas carols and songs.
What a party pooper!
In today's concert she is a reindeer.
However, I have no idea what she is going to be sat in!
Such a sweet child x
Anyway, today is Beauty's school concert but I do not think I will be attending due to this virus I have as I think it would be unfair to inflict it upon anyone else.
It has got worse and it has now got to the 'HACKING AND SPITTING' stage!
Also, all down my wind pipe is starting to feel sore.
I shall ask her teacher to take a photo of her sat in whatever she is sat in then I will not miss anything!
The sad thing is she never notices if I am there or not!

My memories of my own school concerts include always being an angel but never Mary and being dressed in Edwardian clothes singing to Mary Hopkins' song Those Were The Days..

My most significant memory of the concerts Beauty's older sisters did.....Fiona dressed as Mary seen drop kicking the baby Jesus across the stage just as the stage curtains are closing.
I was weak with laughter
You have got to love that kid.
She is a star.

Oh yes.....PC gone mad.
I can imagine this happening!

Hope the concert goes well... I was in many as a child but never had a significant role. Never Joseph or the Inn keeper, never the wise men or the shepherd. Just a spare.

Hope you are feeling better and the concert went well.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
