Last weekend, we had friends to stay and we treated them to the Christmas Sing-a-long at the Royal Albert Hall. It’s a lot of fun.Ordinarily, whenever we go to a carol concert or the Panto, we throw on a Christmas jumper and call it done. I was, therefore, rather alarmed when my friend, she of the Strictly WhatsApp conversations, announced that she had bought matching dresses for herself and her daughter … not being the mother of daughters, I had no idea that was even a thing.A quick Internet search revealed that there are plenty of Christmas patterned dresses for grown-ups … I plumped for a skater dress that has a plain black bodice and a patterned skirt, and I paired it with a cropped cardigan in red. My Santa hat was an additional extra.My personal style highlight was when someone stopped to ask where I’d purchased my dress from … if you’re interested, I got it here (and will be wearing it again when we go to the Panto).
And what of the sing-a-long? It was brilliant! A successful mix of classical music and sing-out-loud-with-actions. It’s ideal for all ages and the tickets were very reasonably priced. Ho ho ho!
