9 Jan

It is Monday evening, in winter. Sylvie is ill in bed. Chris is learning to play the saxophone. He is practising. 😦

    I object to the tone of this. You could recognise my ‘Au clair de la lune’. And now we are communicating via our daughter’s blog…

      Is that YOUR “Au Clair de la Lune” rather than the usual one?

      Why don’t you join in Jo and make some noise of your own? You could perhaps add a few tambourine flourishes here and there.

    Wow, saxophone, I’m impressed………. Harrie wants to learn the saxophone but it’s been suggested that she waits until her braces are off, affects the ‘blowing’ technique apparently. Is Chris having any lessons? Hope Sylv will be feelin better soon.

    Oh dear.
    I’m not a winter person either, so sympathies. But it will pass.
    Sylvie – get well soon. One of the bad things about winter, all those bugs around. Everyone gets zapped at some point.
    Chris – I can only admire your efforts. Producing a recognisable tune at this stage is impressive and you should not deterred.
    Jo – it could be worse (e.g. the violin). Have you given any thought to earplugs? (silicon ones are very good). x

    Can’t imagine saxophone practising is too hideous on the ears, or is it?? I’m with Celia, violin must be the worst thing to have to listen to!
    Hope everyone’s health and spirits pick up soon…..

    Have a photo somewhere of Chris at a Blues Brothers party and there’s a saxophone involved ….
