Advent Calendar Door 19

I had the perfect gift from the calendar today - a much needed new throw for the sofa.  I'm currently wrapped up in it as I type this post.
I'm cold and tired from carol playing this morning.  It was the last one for this year, and I struggled a bit this morning - it is not pleasant playing a brass instrument when you have a head cold and the resulting headache is pounding and hasn't yet responded to pain killers. I'll probably resort to a soak in the bath to get warm and relax, that should get rid of the pain!  Despite the moans (I am still at the pathetic, feeling sorry for myself stage of the cold) this is one of my favourite times of the year in the band.  I love playing the carols and seeing how much all the children have progressed.  
Next, I'm changing to the flute and have three sessions to do.  These are a lot easier - all seated and indoors in the warm, playing at local retirement homes.  I'm just helping out, rather than organising as I do with the brass band, so I just have to turn up and play.

  1. Hope your cold is better soon.

  2. Sorry to read you have a cold, I hope you will feel better soon.

  3. I do hope you are feeling better by now Eileen. Well done you for playing a wind instrument while you have a cold - it doesn't sound fun or easy!
