An Amazing Day

Hello, well yesterday turned out to be a totally special day .
It did not involve the family.
It did not involve any craft activity.Nor any shopping or travel,but it will stay in my memory for many years.
I wasn't planning to blog about this as there are many areas of our daily lives we never mention here.But it turned out to be such a great day I just had to give it a mention.
Back in January one of our bosses at work announced his plan to stage a concert to raise money for a teenage cancer unit at our local hospital.
This received a mixed response!! However it was such a good cause we couldn't really say no.

Many rehearsals later we had a pretty decent version of this....
( if you're not familiar with this song ,keep gets better)...... add to the line-up of dance routines,comedy ,singing etc.

Well I'm glad to say all went well.I'm not a natural performer but it was not too daunting to be in a big group.The lighting meant you couldn't even see the 600+ audience.

Here's me in my habit,trying not to look nervous.....

I don't think I will be getting up on the stage again any time soon ,but sharing all our nerves made it an an amazing team building event.And a great buzz when it was over.Not to mention the £6,000 raised for such a good cause.
