Tonight we helped out Colchester in Bloom on a very festive and sparkly High Street. Our task was to deadhead the flowers in all of the flower display boxes along the High Street! A more delicate task than the usual removing plants by force.

It was chilly! So we worked fast and then went to get warm outside Firstsite, doing a circuit of sprints, press-ups, squat jumps and triceps dips!

Next week we are singing Christmas Carols so here is my adaptation of an old stool Christmas rap.

Don't you give me all that jive about things you wrote before I's alive 'Cause this ain't 1823 -- ain't even 1970 Now I'm the thing named GG Colch and Christmas is one thing we know So every year just about this time, I celebrate it with a rhyme

Gonna sweep it, gonna wrap it, gonna make it good Gonna snip pick mop it through your neighborhood Gonna run it, gonna walk it till it's understood My rappin' 'bout to happen like a knee you've been slapping Or a toe you've been tapping on a hunk of wood 'Bout a red-suited team with a friendly attitude And a sleigh full of good deeds for for the people on the block Everyone is welcome, maybe we look kinda weird And if you ever see us, we can give you quite a shock

Who doesn't love a Christmas rap...thanks Kurt's Blow for the inspiration!
