Silent night, holy night ...

Left to right: our vivacious hostess Sharyn; Padma; Johan; Angelica


Sharyn's Christmas 'drinkies' were very convivial and animated and only turned silent when I brought in my button accordion to play 'Silent Night, Holy Night'. After the first verse everyone joined in. "Silent night, holy night. All is calm, all is bright."

We are back at "Riverbend" now with our guests, Johan and Angelica, and about to "sleep in heavenly peace".

P.S. What the critics are saying: "I must say how much everyone enjoyed both your company here on Christmas Eve but the highlight of the night and an event which will give wonderful memories to all, was Peter's entrance playing Silent Night. Absolutely it was unbelievable. I could not see you properly in the darkened vestibule so thought it was a wandering minstrel. That gave me joy but more so when I realised it was you, Peter, fabulous double surprise. Thank you both so much for an evening I will never forget. Sharyn"
