Grease is the word

Tonight was the opening night of Selby High School's production of Grease. It was the culmination of 8 months of speculation (who will get which part), rehersals and nervousness for Alice who auditioned for, and got, the role of Sandy. There was that wonderful mix of extraordinary talent, energy, wobbly scenery and loud stage direction whispers that makes up a successful school production. My Mum, Dad, Sister and her family all travelled up from Nottingham to see the performance. Alice's normal Tuesday evening Rangers group came along too. There are two more sold out evening performances this week.

It was fantastic to see Alice so animated and healthy. It is a year to the day that Alice had her first MRI scan and her Arnold Chairi brain malformation and Syringomyelia were diagnosed. She had a decompression operation at Leeds General Infirmary last December and has made such a remarkable recovery showing enormous strength of character. Chris, Rose, Jack, Lucy and I are very proud of all that Alice has achieved in the last twelve months.

I have a few friends with ACM so it is great to see and hear about someone so young benefitting so well from the decompression. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Keep your head up and stay positive!
