Thursday 10th August - Preparing for Next Term

There's always a lot of things to get done in the Summer holidays. I've done most of my planning for the class music lessons, and I've begun to start teaching myself to play classical guitar, as I have found myself scheduled to teach it to a class of thirty youngsters next term.

Beginning to start to learn? That might sound a bit weird, but I mean what I say, or type. The first stage is always to scope out the size of the task, and make sure you understand the terminology, helpful diagrams and specific vocabulary. A bit like reading through a recipe book and assembling the ingredients and utensils.

Oh, and I have washed, disinfected, rinsed, dried and packed away approximately two-and-a-half-dozen ocarinas. All in a day's work for a music teacher. They are safely stowed away in the boot of my car ready for September.

Thursday 10th August - Post

This arrived in the post the other day;

The post mark is 21.12.2016.

The card comes from a gentleman who used to have piano lessons with me, who always heads his cards with the year... "Christmas 2016"

What a pleasant surprise! I wonder where it has been all this time.

Wednesday 9th August - Isaiah 40v10

Found this in one of the churches we visited last week.

It's a sort of "Thought for the Day"

Isaiah 41:10

SUNDAY               Do not fear
MONDAY             I am with you
TUESDAY            Do not be dismayed
WEDNESDAY     I will strengthen you
THURSDAY         I will help you
FRIDAY               I will uphold you
SATURDAY         I am your God


Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Lookz! Celing Cat comes wif strong pawz, da rule for him; lookz! his cheezburgerz for da peeps r wif him and his catnipz 2!

I've been enjoying reading the lolcat Bible (it is on wikipedia). It certainly livens up Paul's Epistles.
