Mencap day 2006 – The day when people with various disabilities come in to take part in activities hosted by the school. Although I didn’t have to help out (upper sixes don’t have to) I decided to go in anyway, to help out Mr. Dearden who brought in his penny-farthing for people to sit on and have their pictures taken.
The task: Sort out the music in the cupboard of the music rehearsal room (choral music) which was all over the place, unsorted and chucked all over the room. Count EVERY single copy of music and catalogue it according to composer, title, type, edition, ISBN, etc. and put them into seperate numbered boxes to find easier.
So, it was a total mess – because no one had bothered to sort out anything in the past 25yrs.
For a while I wasn’t sure how old I was. But anyway, now I do. 18! (I hope I’m correct!). I thought that today would be a bit of an anti-climax after yesterday’s thing, well, it was definitely MUCH quieter, but just as nice…
First off, I actually have good news and bad news. But I don’t feel like talking about bad news not for a week at least, so I shall write about the good news! Well.. so, I’m 18yrs old TOMORROW, so why am I talking about my birthday??? Well, read to find out – one of my most peculiar days here.
Just a note that if you look at the sidebar, there is a new ‘random’ page which leads to some “random” (oh wow!) stuff. Nothing much there at the moment, more to come. [END]
A short music update on my last Millfield evening recital ever. Played in 3 items, page-turned for another. Quite a busy night.
I can’t really write a post like this. Music explains it better.
Maurice Ravel – Pavane pour une infant défunte. Go listen to it.
If you can’t listen to then read this post – but you’ll lose out some details.
When do you need a “special” piano?
You know you want one when, even on your steinway concert grand model D piano, you try turning a page and instead 2 pages turn! Then you want this piano…. (which probably doesn’t exist)
