dancing on the midway

It’s a shame that I so often post miserable things here, I’m really very happy at the moment. I’d delete the emo but it’d probably be a shame to. But yes, I’m feeling extremely Christmassy now (save for the Aeneid I’m currently translating) – Sam and I have finished making our truffles, and they are beautiful, and some other presents I’m making are coming together really nicely, which makes me happy.

And in a bit I’m going out to the crib service to play music for the hymns along with Chris L and Lizza and Suuz, which should be jolly (the children’s Christmas services are full of havoc), then later on I’ll be in midnight mass too. The choir did our candlelit 9 lessons and carols last night, to a packed church, and it passed off without a hitch, which was fantastic. Andrew must have been working with the younger ones before we arrived yesterday because suddenly all their solos sounded… good. It was quite humbling after the service yesterday to realise that people here appreciate our little choir’s lovely imperfect music just as much as – if not more than – the people who came to my Cambridge choir’s London concerts did.

Tis the season indeed. And only 30L of Aeneid 9 left.
