Singing for Fun

I went to a singing group this afternoon at our local library. It is being run by a friend of a friend whom I know slightly. He had been approached to run it by a local NHS service to help people with breathing problems, but he was happy for me and my friend to go along, although strictly speaking we don't qualify. In my youth, I used to belong to choirs and even an operatic society, but that was many years ago. I found that I still love to sing. It was great fun and I met some some lovely people there. They encouraged me to go again, so I probably will, although I can't next week as I'll be away on child and dog minding duties.

We sang old favourites like I Believe and Oh Shenandoah. Then we were told that every session ends with a rousing rendition of Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. Cue video for a bit more fun.

Oh what fun, Jean. Singing is so therapeutic. I used to be in the school choir, because, according to the nuns, 'all Italians can sing'. But i had to mime most of the time as I can't hold the note when there's a harmony. I do hope you keep going!

It's great, Paola. I've been twice now and made new friends. As well as the singing, which I love, there's going to be a summer party and an autumn pub lunch.
