Sorry I've Not Been Updating But...

Trust me, I had my reasons...

But I'm touched that so many people were wondering where I went...it felt like I am (or at least my blog is) appreciated..he he he.


Anyway, here's some news..

Last Thursday 2 huge boxes arrived..


In them were items that were assembled by Mr S to make this...for me!
(A Yamaha Clavinova CLP 320)

Used the money saved from my little catering business to purchase my very own, brand new digital piano!

Yes, I play the piano...have always played but haven't played for a while - for 17 years, to be exact! But now I think it's time for this old love affair of mine to resume again.

Am a bit rusty, to be sure, but am loving every minute of polishing up again!



It really feels good to run my fingers across a piano once again...love it!



And Little H also enjoyed himself with the new arrival - by playing 'homeless boy' on the flattened boxes...he he.

The kids will now be taught by their mum to play the piano.



They've already had their first few introductory lessons using the same book I used when I first started playing when I was 8 years old. They seem to be enjoying it...


Just for pic's sake : the boys in their identical winter jackets sitting in a tube station...;)


Thank you Mr S for helping me to get the piano and in helping me to choose the best one for the money I had...love you!

What lovely boys you have. Mungkin kita boleh tubuh club. Auntie pun ade three boys but no girls. Bila tengok budak2 tu teringat masa anak auntie kecik2 dulu. Pening giler layan kerenah mereka but as a mother itulah saat paling bahagia. Sekarang ni nostalgia... datang kembali. Well, selamat ber'piano'!
