Re: I smiled because...

I open a packet of 100 T5 screws, to find a T5 screwdriver bit included. Which was good as my current one is getting becoming a bit worn.

Re: I smiled because...

After having flights cancelled and changing again today my family arrived from Geneva to Gatwick late afternoon just before it was closed again. So lucky as a few morning flights were cancelled again. So many friends still stuck.
Christmas is on again..

Really feel for those who weren't so lucky...Hopefully everyone will manage to be with loved ones this time of year.

I received a glass of champagne in Tiffany’s before they blatantly robbed me.

Re: I smiled because...

Our waiter turned out to be Czech.

And we left the restaurant with all our pockets stuffed with corporate chocolates and candies

For more one year in finishing, it's a good moment to be in peace and harmony with self. And only better thing to do is to choose something good:

when the sun came over the hill and hit the hoarfrost - always loved it since I was a small kid and a few minutes later- the air full of sparkly twinkles falling like snow

Re: I smiled because...

Today is the first time I have used a European computer with this keyboard layout and I had to Google `how to find the @`... plus the Z should be where the Y is and my words look hilarious.

Händel was quite a composer. There are passages where there is no oxygen for a while...Bring it on, crazy high notes

Re: I smiled because...

... often wondered how she'd got on, one of my students/tutors who grew up in VERY difficult circumstances, and bounced from childrens' home to different foster homes. And today she go in touch on FB- now 46- seems to be doing very well for herself - oh and it is a winterwonderland up here today again

Re: I smiled because...

Oh wow and a great surprise- a special visitor tonight and a private Hang concert on the Hang we brought over from UK - might pop in to 'our' Church to test the acoustics <3

Re: I smiled because...

Watch out for the sound in churches doing the weird accoustics acrobatics in the round church part. Just pulled off a monstrous concert in Lausanne cathedral, and the further one perform from the round front part, the better.

It's a great church, used by many choirs for concerts and for CD recording (Yaroslav last year and a couple of years back, have you heard them? As it will be just us and the Hang player and a friend, we will indeed be able to test lots of different parts.

Re: I smiled because...

this morning driving down to physio- long wait at the pedestrian crossing- as 3 primary school classes, teachers and a few parents crossed with a sledge each to go off to the slopes for the morning

next time they will all have their xcountry skis provided by the Commune for winter PE - fabulous.
