Today I was really happy to see my old cello teacher, Catherine. I've been meaning to play again and have been neglecting my poor cello for ages. She's a fantastic teacher who has taught me since I was about 7 and has really inspired me to play again. So, I'm taking myself off to the music shop tomorrow to spend my vouchers I got playing in concerts over the years. I'm getting a tuning fork because I no longer trust our piano and a black hole because playing on my carpet is a nightmare. Catherine's given me loads of her old music so I'm looking forward to getting stuck into them over the summer. I love playing, it just chills me out and makes me so happy. Most people have something musical within them and I thinking stopping playing would be something I'd regret for the rest of my life!
