Two things.

Another Yay, Ditz! moment. We can't wait to share this one with her grandmother. It is too, too funny. The rehearsals for the Ten Tenors concert are now in the fine tuning stages, as they should be. The concert is only a few weeks away. The ensemble has the music down pat & they are working on things like French pronounciation & sss. They are also assigning solo lines. Ditz actually put her hand up for one. These are always given out on a volunteer basis so no~one feels pressured if they aren't feeling confident but not only is Ditz fairly new she is one of the few students not also taking private lessons. Well, she got her line! She has to sing alto & out of tune!!!! Too, too funny making. And she was told she does it so well! The look on Ditz's face! It wasn't meant as a back~handed compliment but Ditz is too smart not to have got that joke. Guess what I got all the way home in the car...& on the boat...& in the car? No prizes.
Meanwhile Liddy's away game this week is at the half way point between home & my mother's & it is on a Sunday. Dino & Liddy both have Friday off so we are going to make a weekend of it & take a flying visit up to see mum, leaving {hopefully} on the first boat Friday & coming on home after her game on Sunday. Dearest is in charge of the psychotic one. No, Liddy doesn't get to drive on the highway but I am hoping Dino will sort out his lisence so we can share the driving. His driving is quite good so long as he sticks to the speed limit & with mum in the passenger seat he has no choice!
