After a lovely Saturday evening, Sunday was spent relaxing in the morning and in the afternoon cheering for my sister and her colleagues. Choirs are big things in the United Kingdom and choirs at work are getting more and more popular. And my sister's workplace is no different and they formed their own choir last November.

Then someone thought it might be good fun to apply for the Workplace Choir of the Year. The day before I arrived in Northern Ireland they were in the semi finals and guess what: they got picked to go to the final! And last Sunday was said final. Since I wasn't doing anything else, I tagged along and listened to nine choirs singing two songs each. It was great fun, but I could definitely not say who would win.

They came third. Since they only announced the winner and the runner-up, it meant that all the others ended up in third place. In my view anyway. But they were pleased anyway and there is always next year!
By the way, the competition was organised in Dublin, which of course is not in Northern Ireland but in the Republic of Ireland. Same island, different country. Quite a few music and sports competitions are held Ireland-wide, regardless of borders.
