Feis day. We started with Irish Dance lessons in the morning. Then returned home to get Celine ready for the show, putting on make-up, doing up her hair, adding a fake tan (yes, really). We drove over two hours through London traffic (to go 20 miles). We did make it to the feis on time, but barely. It was totally mad: no changing rooms, people running everywhere. Celine danced well and took a few 8<sup>th</sup> places, a 6<sup>th</sup>, and some other spots. I thought she danced very well and was surprised that she did not place better. We then drove 2 hours and 20 minutes to get home. Yikes!
