Worth the effort

Worth the effort of travelling to Edinburgh for one night. Worth the risk to limbs and dignity incurred by walking for half an hour along lethally - and unpredictably - icy streets to St Mary’s Cathedral. Worth all the efforts of teachers and pupils ...

What was?

My older granddaughter’s school Christmas concert that turned out to be a service of lessons and carols, complete with band, organ, choral numbers, solo singers, animated and stumble-free readers, and a lovely parade of angels, wise men and shepherds whose garb may have been borrowed from Obi-Wan Kenobi...

I love it when children are encouraged and helped to do things excellently. I loved seeing the Cathedral completely packed. I loved seeing how high my own grandchild was afterwards.

No-one warned me that we too would have to do so much singing, but you know what?

I loved that too.
