December Swim and a Compound Curry

Today, weirdly was a Bank Holiday in the last week of term. The weather was hot and sunny, much as it has been all week. So after a lazy morning, we went for a swim in the pool. A great way to spend an afternoon.

This evening a number of colleagues from across the compound gathered together for a Compound Curry. We each brought different dishes which we shared, including homemade Samosas, Naan and Chapattis. A great pre-Christmas evening before we all head out our separate ways in the holidays. For us it will be Zanzibar, for others Moshi and Arusha near Kilimanjaro, whilst others are travelling further afield into Rwanda. Even got to taste my first Mince Pie of the year.



Songs of Christmas: Day 9 – Coventry Carol

Each year I start playing Christmas Music from the start of December.

Each day until Christmas (in addition to my other posts) I will post a link to a video of some of the Christmas tunes on my iPod. Some will be carols, others pop songs. Here is my 9th offering:

So many different versions of this including two from my favourite artists, a more traditional version and a different version from the film “The Nativity”. Four for the price of one!
