    Ah well, I don't feel welcoming as I've been (and start to be again) sorely disappointed...

    I'm good, thanks. Munching on rice which always make me happy

    Did you make good progress with work?

    Nope, I'm still working on something that is due tomorrow. It's proofreading, so it's not too tiring for my littlle brain. I've been told tonight that someone who used to come to the choir has died this morning. He was a really nice man, it's really sad.

    He had been unwell for a few months, but I didn't think it was that bad. Anyway, I'm landing pretty solos at the moment, makes me happy. On a sad note, though, there's only gonna be one christmas concert instead of two this year...

    Not sure why there's only one concert. I think the other venue is not very practical (as we can't put that many people in it) and it was hard to get people to commit to both dates (especially as some good singers from a professional choir come to give a hand and struggled to do both dates). I guess it will feel extra special, as we'll only be doing it once Now, let's see whether I land my own song/solo in the concert, that would be a massive present!!!

    That's a very positive way to look at it

    Crazy how Xmas is just around the corner already. Next year is gonna be an important one for me.

    Sorry to be slow but my connection is acting up a bit.

    Could be, AC. Although the original wording doesn't suggest so. A "chupa chups" is the best known brand of lollies, and chicken drumsticks are translated nothing like that. Maybe it's one of those fancy things. I'm afraid I'm much more simple in my tastes.

    Thanks for the sun rays they are working


    It would obvious if they were drumstick if you got them, if the stick part of the lolly is a bone you're probably ok if it's some from of plastic stick you're not

    No, I know chupa chups are lollies, but I really think it's just some fancy way to say chicken drumstick on the menu. Believe it or not, I've seen this somewhere else before Plus, the rest of the menu is rather usual too, so I bet that's what they are...

    Can I have some sunrays too? The weather is just as abysmal here
