So here we are September upon us and no signs of getting back to singing, I do miss the choir and fellowship singing at home is not the same.
On the bright side we've had some good days out. We were going to Leeds for Anne's 70th birthday to stay in a house all the family but it got cancelled last minute due to maintenance issues, so we all went to Lindisfarne for a picnic and had a great time. We then went back to Marie's for an Italian meal from Sambuca’s Ch-le -St so it was a brilliant day anyway.
I am starting back to lollipopping on Wednesday. It will be strange because I am not allowed to keep my uniform and stick in school and must clean it all after every shift - oh joy this covid has a lot to answer for.
Anne is going in for cataracts on the 11th Sept so we have to self-isolate till then, then things we can't do is really silly: no shopping, no going out etc. We will be staying safe and going for walks and car rides to the coast, keeping a safe distance from others, then we will see what the next instructions are.
Hope everyone is safe and well, take care, we will meet again one day.

It is good to hear from you.
We are both good, although missing our singing with Argus.
Have cancelled two holidays (cruising) as have decided to stay in the U.K. There are plenty of places in the U.K. to go and see, although we have spent much time in our garden.
I have done 7 hanging baskets, they are beautiful, although I say it myself. We are even doing Tesco on line and David enjoys choosing.
Please take care and hope to see you all soon.

All doing well.
Meet Max the Border Terrier pup who is just 10 weeks old but already at his first choir practice - even if his voice hasn’t yet broken.
Which choir member are you?
I hope the link works: it's a fun quiz to see which type of chorister you are.
I got Soloist - those were the days!
Unfortunately as you will have already anticipated we will not be starting Argus rehearsals in September.
It is so disappointing that singing will be at the bottom of the list to start (especially amateur).
We are booking dates from January - May 2021. Hopefully they will be able to happen.
Attached are the minutes from the Zoom committee meeting we had recently.
We aim to have a Zoom or Teams "speaking get together" for everyone on 5th September at 2pm.
Please join us if you can. It will be great to see each other, even though it will be remotely.
In the meantime take care & stay safe (& sane).
We had a committee meeting last night via Zoom.
As you can see we were all very supportive when Judith had problems with her audio and was driven to drink!
