Pleased to say that Dad is brighter and eating/drinking more, so he’s definitely on the mend.
Good guitar lesson yesterday – actually got some praise out of Jim. (Possibly because I’d practised?) The Tarrega is quite tricky. There’s an evil bit on line three which has a glissando and then a pull-off, and can I get the hang of it? (Two-finger gliss and then lift off second finger. I can see how it works. But I can't do it.) I guess it’s like everything else: work at it until I get there.
Am doing some fairy dust stuff today – waiting in for a special delivery. Will explain more tomorrow but it’s something my RLH has been drooling over for months. As we’ve been together for 25 years, this year, I always intended to get it for him. But because life has been a bit sticky this month, and he’s been particularly wonderful and supportive, it’s arriving today. And I am so looking forward to seeing his face. From the shape of the box, he’ll guess immediately what it is, but it’s still going to be nice.
As for the 44 – I’ve just realised that the current book is my 44th M&B. Hmm. First one was out November 2002. Seven and a bit years ago. Hmm. Maybe Kate Walker was right and I am indeed Kate Scary… BTW, go over to Kate’s blog for a chance to win a book. And I’m with her on That Line from That Film. Utterly wrong!
