But tonight, Stokes Valley is blessed with the show, with an audience of parents and friends.
Our boys were taking part, not in leading roles but as part of the chorus, and also playing clarinet and oboe. Viv has played clarinet in public on many occasions, but never as support to a rap singer.
Tomorrow, the Bank's quiz. I can see collapse for us at the end of the week. Before tonight's show, the boys had played seven games of hockey (David wearing heavy goalkeeper gear throughout) so I think they will sleep well.
