Amongst all the anticipation of Macca's concert, something much more important was taking place.
Yesterday afternoon, Dassi's school was privelaged to hold a very special lunchtime session in the hall. It turns out that one of the kids in Dassi's year is first cousin to Greg Chamitoff, one of the astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
The school had a link-up with the space station and the kids were invited to ask questions, whilst the whole event was filmed by both the BBC and ITV television networks.
To our delight, we saw our eldest daughter on TV, sitting there in the audience, as part of the feature on the "London Tonight" programme at 22.30
Apparently, she was even featured on a close up in a earlier programme which we unfortunately missed! As far as I know, this is the first time she has ever appeared on television, so it was an especially proud moment. Well done Dassi!
