I sang Christmas carols today for the first time in 2020.
For context, in a normal year I spend most of December singing carols in various settings – churches, hospitals, schools, old folks’ homes.
Not this year, for obvious reasons.
And this is why today’s little sing was so precious.
Six singers, outside, at two metres distance and singing carols in four part harmony to a small group of pre-school children.
And it was magical.
After 2020, I promise that I will no longer take for granted the simple pleasures in my life.
