I was taken aback on Monday by a phone call from my daughter’s nursery asking if I was coming to parents’ evening? I had no idea it was even happening and thought it a tad odd for a two-year old but along I went! Actually it was lovely, helped by the fact they offered me wine or Pimms when I got there. It was just a quick chat about Littlest and a chance to take her folder home and see photos, record-keeping etc. I love getting a glimpse into what she’s like when she’s apart from us.

Eldest daughter has asked have music lessons. This puts us in a quandary. I would love her to learn an instrument and it is something I always regret never having done. My self-taught renditions of Simon & Garfunkel on the piano do not count! The first hurdle is cost; of lessons and instrument. Secondly comes the questions of which instrument?

I am investigating cost and practicalities and then we’ll see…..
