“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

Christmas isn’t Christmas without carols. I forget this every year. I get through the first few weeks of December feeling that bit of Christmas sparkle, but nothing more, and I wonder why. Then when I attend a Carol Concert, it all falls into place!





This year was the best Carol Concert I’ve ever been to and it was hosted at the Museum of Army Flying in Middle Wallop. The location itself is stunning. Getting to wander through the museum after hours is a privilege and to be amongst the exhibitions listening to Christmas music is just magical.





This evening we were serenaded by the Middle Wallop Military Wives Choir and St John’s Singers from Salisbury. Both complimented each other fantastically and the program was amazing with some nice surprises to get the Audience participating as well. Mince Pies, Mulled Wine, the setting was perfect and with some carols in the mix it was a great evening.





This was my favourite part though – “Wherever you are.” (Apologies for the blurred video – I was enjoying the music!)

“When she awoke, the world was on fire.”
― Scott Westerfeld,

At the exact moment I was driving home from work thinking about what to Photograph for todays blog, I came across this…

It was the strangest scenario. I was looking for people, other cars, anything that could actually hint at what had happened here in this fairly rural location in a village called Upper Clatford. I called the fire brigade, although it looked like it had been on fire for some time and I would be incredibly surprised if nobody had called already.

Then I parked up a short (safe) distance away and used my iPhone to try and determine whether there was anyone inside. What I could have done if there had been, I don’t know. It didn’t appear as if there was – but it was still incredibly strange. The ditch next to the car was also on fire with a long trail that suggested spillage of some kind. At one point (as seen below) a man appeared at the other end of the road, but quickly backed off when the tyres went.

I’ll be interested to know the outcome of this one – because regardless it was a huge hazard to anyone driving by and when I inched my car past the wall of heat was immense. The explosions as the tyres melted were also quite large and something about it seems really strange. A car parked neatly in a driveway…on fire… The fire brigade took around twenty minutes which again was fairly shocking, and the police a further ten.

Anyway, that solved the problem of what to Photograph today, and luckily it seems no lives were lost or injured either. Just a mystery…
