Sorry if I'm out of date posting Christmas pics. These are some photos of Dad playing the piano for carols on the Friday before Christmas. It was a great success - loads of people, enthusiastic singing, lots of village love. Because the pub carol singing is only a new tradition in Coleby I had to work quite hard to make it work and make sure Dad had a good evening.
Making sure people had a songsheet, knew what song we were on, when we were starting, how many verses, singing loud and just generally prancing around keeping it all going. Dad was a star. He didn't want to drink before he played so for the hour before he started he warmed up with Scott Joplin and classical numbers and so many people commented how lovely it was to listen to.
We had more carolling the following evening in our local back in Bradwell. I was a bit tired after the Christmas preparations so didn't get into it as much as usual but still enjoyed the atmosphere and the crowd.
So then to Christmas Day. We did some prep and then took the girls out for a festive walk round the village. It was lovely to meet people and chat and the dogs loved their Christmas outfits (sort of).
