birthday greeting, bottle of wine

My mum would not have described herself as musical. But she was. She was an amazing singer, and sang alto in the Bristol Choral Society for many years.

I am musical. I’m a music teacher by trade. I am not an amazing singer but I can carry a tune.

When I was in the juniors I was in the school choir. I was only in it because I was able to read music (I played the recorder, piano and cello already). I remember coming home one day and telling mum we were learning a song by her favourite band – The Beatles.

She was so happy and we sang it together.

I now sing it at school with my own pupils. They love it. Every time we sing it I think of my mum.

I wish we could sing it together, today.

The day when she should be 64.
