update – karaoke, weekend, work and home again…
Last Friday night I decided to brave the karaoke bar with Tamara, Miguel, Anna, Dina, Paz and Bryan – much fun!
Miguel started the night off with a rousing rendition of 'I'm too sexy', complete with giant afro wig and sunglasses…
Anna sang "What's goin' on" (small girl, big voice!) and then Gillian and her boyfriend turned up just as I was singing "Please Mr. Postman" (yes, by myself – terrifying!)
Before we left we all sang, very badly (as is customary) Bohemian Rhapsody…oh dear! Very embarassing.
The weekend was very nice – Antony came to visit me! We went Christmas shopping in La Defense, and generally had a snuggly time.
On Sunday (after taking him to the airport) I went to see the new Harry Potter film at Les Halles – everyone else had seen it and I was desperate to! I enjoyed it apart from the very cheesy ending and some of the kids' acting.
I worked at St Germain on Monday (only 1 student this week – I worked with one of the teachers for the rest of the afternoon!) and at Antony on Tuesday, singing 'The 12 days of Christmas' numerous times starts to get tiring, I found! But it was interesting trying to explain Turtle Doves, and why the Hens are French, and what 'a-leaping' is! Tuesday was the last meeting of the year of the assistants (plus Julia's friend Karlo) at the Christmas market – lots of giggling and mulled wine drinking ensued! (although perhaps not in that order…)
I came home on Wednesday afternoon, and started work back at the Palace last night, just in time for the Christmas party tonight…! Pictures and stories to come… L xx
