I spoke to my younger sister on the webcam last night. She lives in California and we don't get to see each other very often, but she surprised us last night with news of a short trip here in July. Her husband has bought tickets for her to come and watch an opera in Manchester (as her 40th Birthday present). The music from the opera has been written by Rufus Wainwright, with whom she is obsessed, and that is her reason for coming. We are so excited to see her and are now busy trying to find some cheap flights for her. I can't wait for her to get here!
Anyway in the meantime and as part of my relaxation, I am going to meet up with a couple of girls from the band I play with and we are going to have a run through a few pieces of music. We all play saxophone and even though we have played this music a million times, we just need to refresh our memory on it before next Sunday's concert. The director of the band has pulled some music out of the band's library from many moon's ago so we need a quick 'refresher' to lock all those notes back into our brains!
After that, I shall be chillin' and that will be lovely. Hope you all manage to do the same!
Enjoy the day!! x
