..because here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjAmWO0h9R8&feature=youtu.be s something that certainly cheered my up; my daughter and grandson having a sing. The track is a backing track; the voices, their own. Considering they were just messing about, and hadn't rehearsed at all, I think it's brilliant!

Some seasonal cheer (and a proud mum/granny)...

Well, you can safely put those humbugs back in the cupboard, Frances. What a fantastic Christmas present and what wonderful voices. That brought a tear to my eye and my friends will tell you - I never cry!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Wendy. I didn't cry, but have to confess I was surprised that they pulled that off more or less spontaneously!Delete
They really are VERY good. I'm not surprised you're proud of them!ReplyDelete
Thanks, CM. I am!Delete
That's wonderful! What a voice your daughter has!ReplyDelete
Thanks, DT. She's only discovered her voice fairly recently, and now wishes she'd had some training earliier on.Delete
Great stuff! What a pair of stars they are.ReplyDelete
Yes - a duo that surprised me!Delete
Brilliant!!! Has your daughter learn to sing (or inherited her great voice) from you, Frances?ReplyDelete
One day, when your grandson will be grown up, he'll look at this again and realize how very, very precious this time with his mother was. From the way he acts, I guess he already does know that this is something to cherish.
She's taken it up as a hobby fairly recently, Meike. She sings a lot in the car with the children, which helps! As for me, no. I can't sing like that (if only...), but I do enjoy singing in our very good church choir.Delete
"Brilliant" is a serious understatement!ReplyDelete
Wow. I couldn't resist leaving a comment on YouTube. What a great rendition of a super old favourite. I enjoyed it tremendously.ReplyDelete
And I love that seat they're sitting on. It looks like it's a cozy nook in the kitchen. Is it?
And yes, did your daughter inherit that powerful voice from you? I think she looks a bit like you, but I didn't have the video and your photo side by side to compare properly.
Thanks for the comment, Kay. Yes - they're are on a small window seat in the kitchen. People say my daughter is like me, but of course we can't see it. Can one ever?Delete
A Christmas present that no money could ever buy. Such a precious moment and such skill and concentration without showing any difficulty: I found it hard even to concentrate enough to sing descant so appreciate that a lot.ReplyDelete
Thanks, GB. What is nice is that it was spontaneous and unrehearsed, and they were (and look as though they were) having fun.Delete
I like to imagine you singing a descant...
one for the memory bankReplyDelete
Thank you, L.Delete

How wonderful....great voices and a good looking pair who are having fun too....a real memory piece.ReplyDelete
Just what I thought, Libby. Thank you.Delete
Thank you , Patsy.ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed the video clip. You have a very talented daughter and grandson. They'd cheer anyone. I can see you're on your way to a very happy Christmas after all.ReplyDelete
Best wishes to you, too, Fanny.ReplyDelete
Happy Christmas to all.
Wow Frances - that is wonderful! What terrific voices - I loved every minute :-) xReplyDelete
Thanks, Teresa. It surprised me, too!Delete
Oh, wow, Frances - that was fabulous! Your daughter has a terrific voice and the whole video with your cute grandson deserves to go viral! What a lovely gift.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Rosemary. I think I'm getting a parcel as well (well, I hope I am!). The cute grandson is totally bewildered by my enthusiasm. But I guess that's men (boys)...Delete
A WOW from me too Frances. I can understand how you are so proud, brilliant it is, brilliant they are.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
Thanks, Anna. You have a good one, too.Delete
Well, I wasn't expecting that. Fabulous.ReplyDelete
Maggie, neither was I! Tthank you.Delete
