Bit of a long day today. I had to sing at both the 9am and 11am services at the Cathedral, which was quite enjoyable but meant an early start. The 11am went really well, at least from a singing point of view. We did De Profundis by Dupre, which is quite dramatic and has lots of high notes in the tenor line. Due to the fact that my voice has finally, after almost 20 years, settled down after breaking, I was able to hammer out the high As with plenty of confidence, and a couple of the other choir members remarked on how good and easy it sounded. I think it’s about the best I’ve ever sung, which feels good. Before I forget, at the 9am we sang a hymn which featured a line relating to the fisherman being called by Jesus. The line was something like “Here are my fishnets, I am ready for working” which sounds a lot shadier than I think it was supposed to.

Lots of Toby time this afternoon – we watched The Little Mermaid together. It was his first time seeing it and I think he really enjoyed it. He was less scared of the scary bits than I expected. As usual the biggest laughs came from someone being bopped on the head with something.

This evening I’ve been playing Zoo Tycoon for the first time. It’s a lot of fun, and quite easy because I was playing on unlimited money mode. I think I wouldn’t enjoy it so much otherwise. Of course it’s one of those “where did the time go?” games, and now all of a sudden it’s 11:30, so definitely time to turn in.
