I have quite a few half-finished blog posts hanging around. I just never get one finished…
They say life is what happens while you are making other plans. Life certainly keeps happening, no matter what plans I make. Bronchitis, abscessed teeth and having to have our old dog put down. We only have one elderly cat left now, and the kitchen feels very empty at feeding time.
At the recent Art Festival one of my pupils had a total disaster with one of her pieces. I was playing accompaniment for her and she started skipping bars. I couldn’t find her quickly enough for us to keep going. She was in tears. In all the years I’ve been teaching this is about one of the worst I’ve had.
It’s nearly a year since my husband retired. At least he has been fairly stable on the medication. Last year this time it was ramping up to total crisis. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy.
In between everything I am still tatting and knitting, and trying to get somewhere with my writing. If I don’t do it now, I never will. If all else fails, I will just put my completed books out on the internet to take their chances. If someone reads them, well and good. If not, so what.
