Relief mixed with actual pleasure.

No time for railway today, so as usual, some images from Google search re French model railway related stuff.

Yielded some sketches and models of the Gare du Nord and a great early picture of the Eiffel Tower.

Currently listening to:

Radu Lupu playing Schubert sonatas.
Last night's dinner:

Chicken in tomato sauce plus samphire
Currently reading:

Drumming practice update:

Our Samba band played in a Christmas Carnival parade in Glasgow today and I think we were a success. People cheered and clapped our playing as we marched through the crowded streets of the city centre.

Tried to take a few photographs but it was pretty well impossible to get everyone in - here are a few real scrappy efforts.

That's actually my gloved hand holding 2 sticks in the foreground - it was very cold.

The scene immediately behind us.
After yesterday's disastrous rehearsal, I was hugely relieved that the performance today was deemed by everyone to be a success. And, I actually enjoyed it.
