A brilliant philosophy, Norfolkbookworm, and a good suggestion about a full re-read. It's about time I did one.

I've just come back from my weekend with the grandchildren We celebrated Sankt Nikolaus this morning. So I'm feeling happy.

How lovely. I have fond memories of my first Sankt Nikolaus in Hamburg in 1959....did one of them recite "Ruprecht, lieber Himmelsknecht..."?

We sang Sinterklaas kapoentje last night.

No singing, I'm afraid. My singing would frighten Plato so my daughter never got to learn the appropriate songs to pass on to her children.

We saw Nikolaus when we went to look round the town centre* on Saturday but all he had left were nuts. So no singing required there either. *They've just moved.

This is the first year they have lived in Germany, rather than just visited.

How are things in your village? Still OK?

I don't buy into the can't sing idea :D. I was what my Natural Voice Network friend calls a "self-styled non-singer", though desperately wanting to sing, until I reached my late 50s when I discovered it was fear that had frozen my voice in its tracks. All those horrendous teachers who had asked me not to sing because I would put off the others...

Very very slowly, and with much expert help, I discovered I could sing and moved on to passionately arranging workshops for others. And singing on zoom four or five times a week with various groups has definitely kept me going throughout lockdown.

I don't know if Shesings is still a member here but I know she would support the idea that singing is our birthright and "If you can walk you can dance, if you can talk you can sing"

Sorry - didn't mean to lecture but it lies very close to my heart! All seems to be well in the village though numbers are rising around the country still and although everyone is good about masking, the social distancing in shops is not so good sadly....

My EBD's have a new home! My husband has built some shelves into an unused alcove, and now they are all together, in order, and with space for a few more fill-ins. :D

That must be nice, Lottie. I am celebrating the arrival in the post today of a GGB edition of Jo to the Rescue. Took me almost a year to find one for sale.

My mum and dad have both been called for Covid vaccinations: they're going to the local walk-in centre tomorrow. My uncle, who's the same age but with a different GP surgery, was "done" earlier this week. I'm actually a bit tearful about it - it's such a relief.

Had my jab couple of weeks ago. My surgery is getting through their list quickly, just heard from friend in 60/65 group that she's been called in. Think it varies quite a lot from place to place, and the demographic make-up of the practice.

Just moved into my own home - no more renting and putting up with appalling landlords who will do anything to avoid spending money on their rental properties!

I had my jab last week, due to working in healthcare. Our Saturday girl, aged 16, was the youngest person they had seen. It was all done very efficiently and quickly. If only people would stop having parties and wear their face masks properly!
