29. Sing in public

In my adult life I have done karaoke once before but I have no recollection of it and apart from singing in church I generally don’t do it hence why it’s on my list and knowing that I don’t have the sweet vocal chords like an angel this is a big deal for me.

If they say a picture speaks a 1000 words then how many does a video clip say? This is going to be a short post because I have two video clips of me “singing” my heart out for you to treat yourself too.

The first is from a netball social (4 July 2014) and this is the netball team GALS I play with. I think my experience of going Back to Netball 2 years ago has been made all the more special to me not just for my love of the sport but because of these ladies and the friendships that have been built along the way, I hope we have a good many more years playing and socialising together. This karaoke really was public because even though we were in a separate room in Poons Chinese restaurant I am fairly convinced that the walls weren’t soundproof and when we went in there the restaurant was full…when we came out it was empty, coincidence?


Obviously it HAD to be Britney

This clip is from my good friends Lucy and Mark Fenwick’s 30th birthday (12 July 2014). It was an evening filled with great food, drinks, ping pong, the not so great bowling and karaoke – my second helping in under two weeks!

I’m sure we’re all in agreement that I will not be appearing on X Factor any time soon but I should get points for trying. I did enjoy my helpings of karaoke and maybe from now on I’ll be quicker to the microphone if the opportunity presents itself again
