Carols Sky - SkyWatch Friday


Another school event, another school sky.

In the middle of the week we had the school carol service – outside at the ending of the day. It was surprisingly chilly, but a glass of wine helped.

The kids sang in their classes and I was “asked” up on stage by the Principal!




The sky was grey for most of the night, but as the Sun was just on the horizon the sky blazed with colour. There was even a little patch of pink cloud in the sky.

The excitement of the coming weekend seemed to distract the kids and their parents from the sky – well that’s the charitable analysis anyway.


You may be able to find other festive skies at Skywatch Friday.

You can also see the most recent post on my other blog by clicking the “Paying Ready Attention” link on the RHS of the screen.
Enjoy the skies, enjoy the weekend and see you other the other side!
