Tom made his First Holy Communion on Saturday, which was why Stephanie visited (she's his Godmother). I was trying to get him excited about it all by promising that there would be a party and he'd get presents. He just looked at me and asked "Will they be good presents, or holy presents?" He was super all day and made me very proud. He looked so smart in his black trousers and white shirt, although he flatly refused to wear a tie and I didn't press the matter. In the church he was marvellously well behaved and read his bidding prayer beautifully.
Afterwards there was a party at school, but I had to leave early to get to Manchester Cathedral http://manchestercathedral.org/. My choir http://www.st-georges-singers.org.uk/ were performing the Duke Ellington Sacred Concert with soloist Jacqui Dankworth http://www.jacquidankworth.com/ and the Big Buzzard Boogie Band http://www.bigbuzzard.co.uk/. It was a fabulous gig and I got home high as a kite. On Sunday I was far too shattered to do any digging so I haven't visited the allotment all weekend.
