Trying Something New

Well, maybe it can’t be termed as learning something new… but I am…

Learning to play the piano! Well the keyboard in this case. Simon bought me one for Christmas and I’ve been going through some simple lessons for 30 minutes a day. Every day. I’ve offered Si some ear buds but he’s very complementary… I don’t think I’m great, but with perseverance I will play something that sounds at least palatable to the ear.

I first learnt to play the piano many, many years ago when I was around 7 or 8 I think. I can’t remember the name of my piano teacher but she was an ex-patient of my mum who was a District Nurse. She was a spinster, smelt of moth balls and used to balance a pencil on my knuckles as I played. When it fell off she would whack my hand with it!
