Something from the BBC for the fourth Advent Sunday and a couple of Bits-in-Between for conductors!
Children-in-Need star stand, Nürnberg
16th December, 2011
A bit of rap
It made me smile out loud!
A bit of sparkle
On Friday evening I was working, as I have done for the past ten years, on the stand selling hand-made stars for child's charities.
Gale-force winds were forecast, at midday the city council were considering closing the Christmas Market in fear that it would be blown away. It stayed open and it rained a lot, but the wind never came. The people did not come either kept away by the storm warnings.
It was s till fun and despite the awful weather the takings for the various charities was on its way to two thousand Euros for the day.
And a sprinkling of snow
We could have done with the icing sugar snow on Friday evening to create a romantic atmosphere to attract the visitors, instead we have it today while put the finishing touches to the Christmas cards beside the now four candles and decorate my tree.
