Piano, football and "life" in occasions!

Today it was so good to have most of my piano students together for a final recital at the Newbury Hilton Hotel Piano Bar. I am really going to miss all of them! We had to compete for space and sound with the England match, which was a new and rather interesting experience! But I can say that all the pianists performed far better than the footballers! Well done everyone! And thank you to all of you who came! As well as enjoying the piano playing and great company over drinks and cake, with the music sale and raffle we raised about £90 for the Tanzania fund! So thank you very much to all of you! And also thanks to Tadley Instruments and Dawson's Music, Sainsbury's and Tesco, for their kind donations!

It is a very strange time at the moment. It has been very busy - since last weekend we have had just about every occasion marked! A graduation banquet, birthday parties (x2), baby dedication, a funeral, a wedding, a farewell concert, and an ordination tea! And in the midst of all this "life" in Tadley, we are so aware of all that is changing as we pack things up, get the house ready for someone else to live in (potential renters viewing this week!) and bag things up for a car boot sale at Tadley Community Centre next Saturday!

And on a final packing note, I can tell you (should you ever need to know!) that 2 single duvets, 5 pillows, 1 double sheet,  8 single sheets, 4 pillowcases, 4 facecloths, 1 bathmat and 1 blanket all fits vacuum-packed in one bag but all together weighs 26 kg .... which is 3kg over the limit of one bag ... bother!
