I did an overtime shift yesterday and today was a full day . Tomorrow I’m on three night shifts….yes
It’s a bit relentless after my holiday .
Thank goodness for Trendy Carol
I Picked up the girls at dusk from her conservatory, to find that she had bathed both of them and brushed Mary to perfection . Carol ( dressed in so ring floaty ) also reminded me that it was Mrs Trellis’ birthday today, a fact I had forgotten . So I popped around with a card ( I always have a selection in) .and slipped it through the letterbox .
Like many older people Mrs Trellis doesn’t like visitors after dark .
And To be honest I wasn’t quite up to a Trellis conversation .
I could see Mrs Trellis in the window of her living room
She was playing her piano with quiet concentration, her grey hair pulled back in a bun tied up with a pink ribbon
I could hear the music, seeping through the window as it started to rain gently
It was the welsh lullaby Suo Gan
It was a lovely little moment
It wasn’t the only musical moment in the village tonight
On my way home I could see the hall lit up and the first socially distanced concert with Luke Johnson performing on behalf of Folk In The Hall was in progress….
I listened to him singing from Chapel Street
Organiser Kelda , and the FIRST village concert
Since lockdown xx
