There’s no exercise classes in August so I’m glad we did a few before our singing group on Thursday. It is the first time I have been able to hear myself. I suppose it was OK but if I didn’t know the tune I didn’t sing.I don’t think I’m a soprano.
We treated ourselves to new wedding rings for our 50th. They are celtic design and I tried to photograph one but I’m not sure how to use the camera.
However enticing the TV may be it is sometimes more enjoyable to go out and experience live entertainment. That is what we did last night and the Sussex Gruffs did not disappoint. This local male voice choir is gaining a reputation for their expert interpretations of show tunes and everything from jazz numbers, opera and novelty songs.
St Symphorian’s Church was a superb setting and the light refreshments a bonus. Worthing has a lot going for it, if only one looks. Sussex seems a very creative place to live.
A special day, today, as we got married 50 years ago and we are still together – through thick and thin! We are going down town to get some new rings as our fingers are too fat for the originals ( like the rest of us!) I’m also getting some new spectacles and we are out for dinner tonight.
I finished the story for the competition and it is ready to post. I am building up readers for my new website http://www.juliecround.co.uk. Comments welcome but don’t be too hard on me, I’m still learning!
Well, I finished the story for the competition and reread the instructions. It had to be under 1500 words and I had 1900. Usually I have to pad out stories. This time I had to cut, cut, cut. First I weeded out any unnecessary description, then I had a go at anything repetitive and finally I had to chop some of the action. It should be obvious who is speaking in a conversation without all the ‘he saids.’
After three tries I had managed to reduce the text. Now I have to do the cover page and send it off. Most stories in the magazine have a few lines about the writers. That should be fun to do – not a full CV, just a taster!
