Lots of good stuff lately

Spidermonkey went on a school trip to Paris and Normandy.  Came back with lots of new goth accessories obtained by haggling (in English) under the Eiffel Tower.  But used his French to order a pizza at Parc Astérix, so that's OK.

Squirelmonkey passed his Grade 1 cornet exam with Merit.  He scored 20 out of 21 for scales and arpeggios, which has to be borderline robotic, but in a good way.

The busking stall at the school summer fair reached new highs - or possibly lows -  with Spider and several friends returning from Big School to play a mean guitar gig.  They lack a singer, but Squirrelmonkey did a fine job of Green Day's American Idiot with no rehearsal, while Musicmonkey stunned the crowd with his Anarchy in the UK.  It's not ever day you see a middle-aged punk straining to read the lyrics from a printout in front of a crowd of waist high pogo-ers.  The cool guitar players coped splendidly.

We're off to France soon for ten days camping in Brittany - or further south if the weather is cold.

And I have a new (part time) job!  More of which in a friends-locked post.
