**They’d been to sell-off-the-stuff-cheap-day at The Chelsea Flower Show

They just get better and better . I think yesterday was the sixth time I’d seen them and they never fail to make me laugh and cry and sing and clap and jiggle and tap . Declan and I went to the 160 strong London Gay Men’s Chorus ,Summer Concert – ‘Heroes’ .It was wonderful , with the added bonus of 5 very different drag artists coming on just before the interval , and culminating in a roof-raising chorus of ‘I’m Getting Married in the Morning ‘ ( one of Grandma’s favourites ) David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ and Erasure’s ‘A Little Respect’ . As usual Declan and I felt a little left out as as unlike most other people ,we didn’t have a brother,partner, father ,cousin, uncle,friend,colleague in the choir ..so we had no-one to wave to and so they could give a sneaky little wave back . So we decided to make one up . We went into role as the proud parents of the good-looking ,smiley young man in the second row ,who I called Evan .Pity we didn’t confer as Declan had adopted Roger who was in the front row ,who was very expressive but didn’t use his hands much .Then we went out to eat and drink in Sloane Square and once again felt very left out as we were the only ones not carrying a huge Aspidistra ( or similar ) .**
