Just got back from our Christmas concert in the village church. While I’d love to give a blow-by-blow account, a combination of red wine and a sumptuous supper might mean that I save that for tomorrow.

I will say this though: the thing that really surprised me tonight was just how much the village has embraced Trevor’s flute studio and turned out in support of it. We had a full and incredibly appreciative church for the concert. Supper was lovely, and it seemed that just about everyone in the village had contributed a dessert. They’ve been doing this for twenty years – as long as the studio’s been running – and for me it was the community atmosphere that really made the night.

We did play rather well too!
