VM put a serious spoke in that wheel!
Redcliff puts on a Christmas Day bash for their *Disadvantaged*. Redcliffe is at least an hour away from the Bay but we have Christmas Day boats to negotiate as well ~ & the sort of parking shortage that makes people want to string our council from the nearest yardarm. Cait, however, was keen to perform because there is serious, serious money involved & after her Christmas splurge her bank account was no longer looking as healthy as it had.
So we organised for her to get a lift with someone else ~ which meant she & I were up bright & early Christmas morning. Cait does not do mornings. She certainly doesn't do them well. Her dysgraphia means she prefers someone else to do her hair ~ that someone being me ~ but make~up has to be done before she walks out the door & bra straps removed.
The end result was lovely. Unlike her mother, Cait has the happy knack of being able to dress well & look stylish & chic with no effort. Having practiced frantically for 2 days the texts are now coming through as they scrap song after song. Yikes. They never got a chance to practice together so goodness only knows....However, VM has the happy knack of lifting for a performance so I am sure once they are down to the wire they will sound professional & absolutely lovely!
