FiveGoldRings

I went to see one of my best friends from school today, Oscar White.

Oscar took Drama, Dance and Music Theatre classes with me but sadly left before 6th form to go to Hammonds a specialist performing arts college.

Oscar and I played Ryan and Sharpay from our version of High School Musical

He is now training as an actor in London so I don’t get chance to see him often so it was good getting all of his training updates πŸ˜‰

Oscar’s parents have recently taken over the Dun Cow Inn in Ollerton near Knutsford and I had a lovely lunch there, it was very busy and a lovely atmosphere, it was great catching up with his Mum too.

Then I got back to some Music studies when I got home; vocal practise and music theory. I drew my golden rings picture and recorded the video, for all you animal lovers reading the coat is fake πŸ™‚

Knowing what a clutz I am Mum warned me not to hold the candle too close to my coat or hair so I nearly couldn’t sing for laughing.

    Wow, this illustration has amazing detail and depth of shading in the rings. What medium are you using?

      Thanks Darren, the gold rings are actually ‘peel and stick’ stickers, I tried to draw them and coloured them yellow but they just didn’t shine enough and the little gold stickers my Mum had for her card projects went great with what I was trying to do.

        Hi Charlotte, I’m sure it will be everything you’ve imagined it will be! Do they sing, Auld Lang Syne in Jolly Olde England? Will you be leading the chorus?

        Likewise,

        Tom

      I was going for the moose look ;0
      I got a bit worried about the candle though after joking about it because a couple of friends had only told me recently their hair had caught fire on candles! :/ yikes

    Wishing your friend, Oscar, well in his performance studies. A good range of rings and the verse of the song that people tend to break into harmony for. Love that line in the song.

  11. 

    Charlotte, I love this! You are brilliant!

  12. 

    come in your chant is very pretty… πŸ™‚ and the light candle iluminate your beautiful face

    The actual lyrics are: Five GOLD rings. Not golden. But I still loved it. And the drawing too.

  14. 

    Wonderful job! Fun seeing you in your travels and hearing you sing! Thank you, you are very talented! Xo

      Thanks Janice, it’s great to be out and about and mixing with friends and family although I’ve stayed away from a few elderly friends of ours so I don’t pass anything on, I’ll catch up again the next time I’m home πŸ˜‰
      All the best

    The drawing is Nice. I’ve enjoyed all the videos of singing.

      Glad you’ve enjoyed them Eric, I did wonder about drawing five goldfinches as two men William and Ceil Baring-Gould suggested the first seven days of gifts were all birds and the five golden rings referred to the ringed pheasant, whilst others said they were five goldfinches but a publication from 1780 clearly had them illustrated as jewellery.

    Your voice sounded so much stronger and clearer. I’m glad you continue down the path of recovery. Most women would like one gold ring. How lovely you have five.

    • 

      He he I’d love five gold rings, I have just one my Mum gave me, it was hers, on my 16th birthday. I sound a bit breathy on today’s but it’s only because we’d been walking in the woods πŸ˜‰

    It’s so special to reunite with friends. Very cute video! What woman wouldn’t like any number of golden rings? LOL.

      Hi Linda it’s so difficult to keep in proper contact with everyone as we all went off in different directions but it’s as if time stood still when we meet up again πŸ˜‰

    I came looking for Day 7 and you weren’t there. So I looked back and realized I had missed Day 5…rings and Oscar. Your voice is definite better hen you are indoors. I suspect cold and damp affect it?? Dianne

    PS Happy new Year!

    I’m gonna try ‘warming up my voice’ when I shout at Bonzo to “shut up” when he’s barking at dogs in the next village at 2am πŸ˜€
