All our jellybeans and baby beans classes started back this week across Lincolnshire, Rutland and a new class started in Northamptonshire and it was so good to be back! Before Christmas, I’d definitely hit the ‘I can’t stand hearing that song anymore’ stage – surely I’m not the only one who can’t stand Jingle Bells? – but it is amazing what a few weeks away can do. I spent the holidays with my boys, mooching around, tinkering with the programmes, thinking a lot about Jellybeans, yep I sat on a cold beach and finished the franchise package (squeal) and now I am just so excited about all the new music and know it is going to be an amazing year for the business.
I’m not sure who was more excited at the start of my first class of 2012, me or the jellybeans. I literally couldn’t wait to pull the jellybean out of the bag so we could start singing – of course I was also excited to be using one of the new design jellybeans,
handmade by the amazing Kate Murray (and on sale in the jellybean shop) but the squeals of happiness from small children and smiles from their adults made me realise yes, term has started and it was all fantastic from there. Every single class all week was full to the brim (and sometimes beyond), but everyone was just so great to spend time with, every session was brilliant fun. Adults sang loudly and proudly, babies giggled and the children responded enthusiastically to everything. I was able to bring my guitar again now my back is healed – I thought I was the only one who had missed it, but from the reaction of the children, everyone missed it.
Yes, I’ve got my ‘mojo’ back and to celebrate I’ve been out doing the other thing I am very good at – shopping – so look out everyone, multicoloured fish are on their way,
