thank you all so much for your words of advice and encouragement regarding the piano, and a huge hello to all the new visitors to my blog - it is so nice to meet you all - i intend on visiting you all as soon as i can x
i am loving the piano!!
i realise it is going to be a long and sometimes rocky road - but it is so much fun x
so far i practice a little each day, i have stuck labels on the keys and marked the notes on the music scores and have begun with the most basic of books - i think i will start looking for a tutor as i do not think i am learning correctly - i seem to have no interest in learning to actually read music, i just want to play a nice tune!
so far i can play Yankee doodle, silent night, Scarborough fair and a few other (very) basic tunes.
the bloggers who said it would be easier playing a tune that you know were so right - gradually it is becoming more and more naturally instinctive when finding the correct key to play next.
apart from the piano playing i have progressed with making of new stock for the website.
talking of which - I HAVE BEEN HIJACKED
a kindly fellow blogger sent me an email to say that a horrid spider virus was sitting where my sweet website used to be
thankfully i have a rather clever and wonderful guy who looks after my website and he is in the process of fixing it - we are just waiting until this evening to find out how much damage has been done - it may mean a whole new look to the site, which i have to say will be a good thing - i am kind of sick of all that pink!
as well as sewing, knitting and general website stuff i am busy sorting the house out for some visitors that are due at the end of the week - i am so very excited as these particular visitors are rather special...
little do they know that once they are here we intend to keep them for as long as we can - be it with our entertainment, cooking, copious amounts of alcohol or by locking them in a cupboard.....
the dogs are very excited
have not told the cats or Binks the bunny - not to sure how they are going to react!!
and for all of you who think i have perfect animals that are full of love and kindness as pictured above (Archie looking particularly beautiful x)
then take a look at the picture below.....
and a devil dog!!!!
i took this picture of talulla in the forest - it was not as dark as it shows
the HUGE stick she is carrying was her prize possession - how she managed to cart it around for so long i do not know
but i have the bruise on the back of my leg, as she sped past me with it as proof!
i will be back soon with news of another item i think i am about to strike off my list - mission two almost completed.......
