I told my dad a couple of years ago…

that If I hadn’t secured a role with a national company by the end of 2019, I was going to contemplate another career. This morning I started rehearsals @IrishNatOpera with an amazing cast and creative team. He would have been proud.

Friday night is climbing night!

Great night of climbing, but my forearms turned to jelly on one climb, which wasn’t a very nice feeling. Supportive pals helped me down…! #singerswhoclimb #operasingersofinstagram #fridaynightclimb

These are not hands the hands of a pianist.

Thankfully. My hands are sore after a cheeky climb at Eden Rock today… but now back to Vivaldi prep for @irishnationalopera rehearsals starting soon! #INOGriselda #singerswhoclimb

In Pease Bay last Friday after a brilliant day in the sea. The last thing dad bought me was a super duper wetsuit, so he’d be glad it’s getting lots of use.

Today I gave blood

I know a lot of people whose lives have been affected by cancer – thinking of three families at the moment in particular. Cancer patients often need blood transfusions or blood products.

As friends of the cancer patient or their family, we can often feel impotent – as if there is nothing we can do to help. But there is – we can give blood, or donate money to charities who do amazing work, like @macmillancancer and @clicsargent

Give blood, if you can. It takes less than an hour, they treat you like a rock star and you get a free cuppa and choccie biccies. And you can justifiably have KFC for lunch.

It’s been a while since I last posted…

but last night’s climbing was awesome. New greens @edenrockedinburgh and lots of fun with good pals. A great way to spend a Friday night.

In the ⁦‪@BushmillsInn‬⁩ with a best friend from teenage years. Frank loved Lisa and would definitely have approved of this one.
