Another manic but fantastic week this week.
In my job, getting the pupils to perform in concerts is quite a bit part of it. And what time of year guarantees a concert or seven? Christmas. So this week is rather hectic however I am loving it and so far all pupils have made me uber-proud.
We also launched our annual LLTGL Christmas Media Campaign yesterday which has hit the ground running and so I am being kept rather busy with that when not rehearing/performing. I am amazed every year at all the fantastic people who volunteer to talk about their own stories, some of them extremely difficult and sad, just to try and help others understand what it is like at this time of year, to be affected by Transplant or Organ Donation.
We've had a brilliant response so far, and I'm very much hoping it continues. I have said it so many times but you cannot underestimate the power of seeing a real life story in the Media. Watching or reading about the human side of things touches people in a way facts and figures cannot. We are indebted to the fab LLTGL volunteers who time and time again come up trumps.
And finally and most excitingly of all, we have a gorgeous sparkly Christmas tree up in our lounge so now it properly feels like Christmas. I finish work on Saturday and am so looking forward to the fantastic traditions our family somehow still maintain. Merry Christmas Everyone!
