To follow the positive thinking from yesterday – which did work, at least to the extent of getting me to choir in a positive frame of mind – though I lost a bit of positivity, when faced with the Stravinsky Symphony of Psalms to sight-read! It went pretty well, though – and our conductor asked for volunteers for a quartet to sing a Purcell anthem, so I put myself forward. I used to sing solo quite a lot at school and at university, and although it was nervewracking, I loved getting that attention and applause.
Today was pretty positive too – I didn’t wake up early and bounce out of bed, but when I did get up, No3 son had made pancake batter, and we all had pancakes for breakfast – and then I did some more housework that has been looking accusingly at me for far too long – I cleaned and vacuumed our bedroom, so the carpet is now cream again, rather than dog-hair black!
My lovely mother in law had her first round of chemo today, and thankfully that has gone well, and she has tolerated it better than she was expecting – though she may feel nauseous overnight. All our fingers are crossed that it will do what is intended. If anyone reading this is kind enough to offer a prayer or healing thought, we would be grateful.
