Every Thursday evening a small group of French and a few English will meet up at our local Maison du Canton. It is not the town hall but more of a community centre. Ours is a beautiful stone building and this is where we will practice singing every week.
The first song which we attempted to sing is fairly ancient, it is aptly named Viens Chanter Avec Nous, I think it may have been written in 1640 something! I have never done this kind of thing on a regular basis before but I felt it might be good for my French, who am I kidding?
The man trying to turn us into a choir is quite a character but I cannot really understand what the heck he is on about, I just keep smiling at him so he probably thinks that I am half mad.
We then intend to go and sing at the local Maison de Retraite's (old peoples homes), and make them miserable! Lets hope not eh....
What is a Canton?
Garden plots at the Maison du Canton
Beautiful flowers and Trees
Hope that you are all keeping well and not working too hard, I have been busy with a paint brush and so I am covered in blue paint. Its nice and warm here but not too warm for the big woofer in the forest.
