I progressed to A and G in the flute today and thanks to Angel Jem I can now play Merrily we Roll Along. It's a bit breathy and a few notes don't actually materialise, but it's passable for a 3 day old flute player or flautist as us professionals are known!
Today has been a lot of nothing really. It started with shopping where a vanilla crown accidentally fell into my trolley and then into my mouth. I couldn't decide between tulips or more daffodils so I bought both. My hyacinth is coming on slowly but no sign of a flower yet although it looks like it's ready to burst open any minute.
After putting the shopping away I got the jigsaw out. You'd think the gaps would be easy enough to fill but they're not. I did have a good run though and probably did about 50 pieces before I started to go jigsaw blind.
I read some more of The Husband's Secret (I know what his secret is now, but I'm not telling). He wrote a letter to his wife years ago telling her the secret but never handed to her. However, she's found it and reads it. The letter was opened at the end of a chapter and I confess I did the unthinkable and skipped the next 2 chapters to find out what the secret in the letter was. I did go back and read the 2 chapters though.
I took Thomas for his haircut then dunked him in the shower. He can't abide having his hair cut and isn't that keen on showers either, so I have to brace myself for barber days.
Amy had a dental appointment which was double booked with the barbers so Mark whisked her up there. No fillings, although she did need some sort of protective covering applied.
We had lamb steaks, new potatoes and vegetables for tea and very nice it was too.
And now we're off out dancing. We added a few more steps to the Cha Cha Cha last week. It was like doing an aerobics class with me panting and puffing my way through it. I seriously thought about playing the HA card and sitting it out, but cardio is supposed to be good for me so I persevered with a few 2 minute rests here and there (pretending I'd gone wrong, so I could stop).
I might not stand on Mark's toes tonight as he said my 'Merrily We Roll Along" sounded pretty good. Personally I think he's read my blog and is aware of what's coming. He's been suspiciously full of compliments today which is very unusual for him.
