    My younger granddaughter graduated yesterday so I travelled to Glasgow to join the rest of the family for post grad celebrations. I am so proud of her as she worked so hard to get her honours degree. Annie Lennox has just been installed as the new Chancellor of Glasgow Caledonian Uni and she apparently gave a brilliant speech at the ceremony. Not sure how much the students knew about her but the parents were thrilled.

    Off to say goodbye to an ex-colleague and friend. He was a regular visitor when Alan was downstairs in his hospital bed. Then in January he was diagnosed with leukaemia and treatment didn't work. So sad. He was a well loved and respected teacher and member of staff. A real gentleman and a lovely friend. He will be missed.

    Sad to hear that SG. Hope he had a good send off.

    My good news is that my son entered the Velothon Wales 140 Cycle Event on Sunday. It was the first time he has entered any cycling event and he goes for the longest distance he can. I'm extremely proud to say that he finished the event, especially as I understand it was hot.

    Just returned from a 5 day tour in Italy with my choir, Classical Chorus. 170 travelled and performed 4 times - concerts in Verona Duomo, Piazza Signori in Verona, Lazise on Lake Garda and during Sunday mass in St Mark's Basilica, Venice. Fabulous venues and very moving. We sung a diverse mixture of Latin, Italian and English songs, including, amongst others, Panis Angelicus, Jerusalem, a couple from Les Mis and The Greatest Showman plus Va Pensiero (Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves). We saw the latter performed live in Nabucco in the arena in Verona. It was very hot, about 37C, so the hotel pool was very popular in the short breaks, as was the bar! We had an end of tour party that turned into a pool party in full party dress. We came home buzzing. What a fabulous opportunity.

    What a fantastic trip goldfish. I would have loved every moment of that both for the music and the venues. I've been to Verona but unfortunately there was no Verdi being performed then and it wasn't quite as hot! But I loved it! Love Italy. Your choir sounds awesome.
