New Piano Day!
|26/365: the old piano, ready for collection|
|an empty music room, not an instrument in sight|
|a thank you gift from the new owners|
Today's the day! The old piano has gone to its new home and the sparkly new one will be here today. The old one now belongs to a 7 year old girl who is very musical and has started learning to play the piano ... it's a surprise for her. I'm really happy that it's going to someone who will enjoy it for as long as it lasts ... my friend D made sure all the keys were working so it should last a few more years for her. The carrier phoned yesterday to ask if I'd accept delivery in the morning if they happened to arrive much earlier than arranged so my new piano may be with me as early as 8 am ... much better than late afternoon, so I hope so. I've also treated myself to a new tablet and that should arrive today as well.
I had a lovely long chat with Joy yesterday, then back home to get the old piano ready for collection and pack up all the sheet music. None of that took too long so I had a last play on the piano, watched Watercolour Challenge, waved goodbye to the old piano, and then read until it was time for bed.
I'm not going to pretend I'll do any work today! As soon as the piano arrives I doubt I'll stray far from the music room except when the new tablet arrives, of course, as I will need to get that set up for tomorrow's piano lesson.
