I drove to Inverness at the weekend Ben Wyvis was looking great but I was not going on the hills. It was magic as I managed to get to watch my Grand kids at Culloden Academy Inverness take part in their Christmas Dance show. It was fantastic and both girls loved it and it was a full house of over 500 watching. Sadly many years ago I hardly saw their Mum and her sister who also loved these type of shows as I was always away on the mountains. It was for a great part my job at the time but you never get these years back. Looking back how much I missed, not just this but call -outs on birthdays, time you can never get back. So it was so good to see the hall full of parents family and friends all there to support the kids. The effort by all the performers and their teachers was excellent. The rehearsals were kept secret by the girls but it was some show and they all did so well. Thanks to all at Performers UK who made it all possible.
To see so many kids loving the dancing and singing makes you believe that this is what Christmas is about.The joy the smiles and the effort they all put in was superb. In my mind we are so lucky that people volunteer or give their time to teach the kids and how they loved it. We had a family meal after and it ended a great day. I was laughing all day at the concert and nearly crying at times. ( Becoming so sentimental in old age)
I can never get that time back with my step – kids when I missed so much being away so often. But I am so lucky to get some real time with those I love. As i drove back Christmas has started and its so good to see the excitement in their lives.
we at times live in a crazy world but things like this help give you faith.
Thanks Yvette, Dave and the girls it was magical.
