Hello there fellow Bloggers! On Tuesday evening we went to KP's school to see Year 6's production of Hagbane's Doom based on the book by Nick Sherrin - the plot if you don't know the story is a bit like C. S. Lewis's - "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe."
Dorinda played by KP turns evil and becomes Hagbane. The photo above shows KP as the evil Hagbane. She had to sing two solos and as she played the main part there was a lot of dialogue for her to remember too! I was one very proud parent! She had a lot of confidence on the stage something that would be alien to me - I was always in the choir but never a soloist and could always be found in the back row hiding behind a taller person so that nobody could see me!
At Secondary School during the 1970's / 1980's it was understood that each child would read from the Bible at least once during their school years as part of the school Assembly. I managed to avoid this for the entire seven years that I was at School! I could duck and dive out of most situations!
I hummed and ha'ad over whether to put these photos on my blog as they contain other peoples' children. In the end I placed them on here only because I know the school will put far more on its website and far more people will access those than mine. I hope that I haven't offended anyone!
In the above photo - The good guys fight off the bad guys!
KP with Mr. Trotter, the Badger!
Hagbane has a fight with Prince Oswain, the hero!
The fight is to the death!
The end is near and everyone goes on stage for a final song!
The Mighty Mice - Grumble, Mumble and Fumble! and some of the other performers!
Thank you kids this was a truly wonderful performance!
And finally, some of the roses in the garden which seem to be flourishing now that the rain has abated and stopped bashing them to bits!
There does seem to be an abundance of greenfly this year though! Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
This is a new rose planted this year! We have planted a rose as all other non thorny plants that have been planted in this particular spot have been flattened to death by the dogs! Surprisingly - the thorns have kept them away - for now!
Until next time,
