THE SHEFFIELD CAROLS - Again!

I know, I know, you heard it all last year. But they’re back again.  And this year people really are going into the pubs and standing in a crowd and singing.  Completely crazy.

Anyway, one village is doing a Zoom carol sing, since last year’s was such a success, for all those who can’t bring themselves to test the level of their immunity.

If anybody would like to join in with a warble or two, or just listen to others breaking the sound barrier, here is the Zoom link. The sing will be on the evening of the 13th of December.

And if you were lucky enough not to be bored to tears by my best efforts last December, here is a link to that lot.

    I only use it in moments of exasperation with my OH. My accent reverts during moments of stress.

    Same as when he gets cross, he reverts to the accent he grew up hearing. He gits virry engri. 😁

    That photo you posted this morning could have been taken in Derbyshire. The same soft hills and little stone walls. 🙂

    Yes, the scenery is very similar to Derbyshire around here. The hills are bigger though. 
    I'm pleased the carols went well, rewarding for all concerned.
