Bienvenue Scarlett!

Jazz Jam

I got back to Haguenau this evening and found that bluemeanie had already started posting to her new weblog. By the way, if you are a member here, then you are also a member of her weblog, so please mosey over there, see what she has to say, and post some comments!

As she says, today Pinkie went to a Jazz Jam workshop organised by the Surrey County Arts.  At the end of the session this afternoon they put on a concent (see picture above). They had split up into three groups during the day. At the concert, each group performed a piece or two, and then they had a final� at the end where all the groups came together. The emphasis on these sessions is improvisation and each child gets a turn to improvise a solo.  Earlier this year bluemeanie participated in a Jazz Jam workshops and Granny Ruth and I attended the final concert.

I enjoyed the Wales/All Blacks match this morning.  Talking of rugby, are you a kicking king?

Tourist souvenir

In Alsace they are so geared up for tourists, that they even sell little figurines of tourists in the shop for the tourists to take home with them. This is weird. I can imagine what they tell their friends and family when they get home:

We saw castles and quaint houses and farms, and tourists walking about with cameras like this.

Yesterday evening, at the airport in Strasbourg, I turned on my mobile phone and found a message from flank:

Nous et en route a Wollongong. Vive les Bleus!

I immediately replied, but forgot that it would be the middle of the night over there.  Oops, sorry.

This morning I am leaving (right now) to get my hair cut by Ali of The Business 2.  Then, depending on how the
weather pans out, I may do some gardening. I have planted all my spring bulbs, but have a bit of pruning to do. I am a bit clueless in this department: does anyone have any tips? Tonight I am having supper with Ruth and some special people.
