Junior winners at the TMSA storytelling competitions!

My goodness I’ve been tardy with my posts – it’s been such a busy year so far!

So last weekend the Traditional Music and Song Association of Scotland (TMSA Aberdeen) had their annual competitions! Back in 2016, GAS sponsored two trophies for Traditional Storytelling – one for Juniors and one for Seniors. The Senior trophy was won by Jane Chalmers in 2016, Alex Patience in 2017 and again by Jane this year – Well done Jane!

However, there had not yet been any entrants for the Juniors. Well I’m just chuffed to announce that on Saturday we had 6 entrants from Kaimhill Primary who had been working on their stories with me at their new lunchtime Storytelling Club!

Here’s a photo from the day of Emma, Dani, Tessa, Chloe, Vanessa, Marta, Maggie Fraser (Judge), Myself and Emma and Chloe’s wee sister (who was delighted to sit and listen to all 6 girls!)Group 1.jpg

A Wonderful Witching Weekend!

Well I’ve almost recovered from the weekend! 😀 Thanks to the Aberdeen 2019 Geocaching MEGA team for having us along to entertain at both of their Hallowe’en Parties on Saturday and thanks to the young vampires, witches and ghoulies for making yesterday’s Robert Gordon’s party so Spooktacular!

Fairies and Pirates!

Two parties coming up this weekend! First off it’s Fairies for 5th birthday – the young lady will receive a special fairy headdress and naming certificate! Then on Sunday it’ll be time for pirate games, stories and crafts!
I love my job! 😀 ❤

Crosby House and Westhill Rainbows

What a fantastic day for storytelling! 

The problem is – I can’t figure out who was my best audience. Was it the ladies and gentlemen at Crosby House who joined in the songs and reminisced about Union Street in the 50s? Or was it the Westhill Rainbows who stamped their feet and demanded more cream!?
I’ll have to declare it a draw
