We will still be having the piano tuner look at it when he comes for the six-week tune-up, but seriously - only when I play Chris de Burgh. I'm not a big fan of "Lady in Red" (overly sentimental, and it's the only song of his they ever play over here), but a couple of the others are quite good - "Don't Pay the Ferryman" is a fun little number, and "In a Country Churchyard" was made for playing at weddings. But still, the piano has spoken, and the CdeB song book goes to the bottom of the pile.
In completely unrelated news, I am definitely going to be at Kingdom A&S Festival (I booked a hotel room this morning), so I will be available for judging all day, and anyone who wants a personal consultation, come and find me - if I possibly can, I will make time for you.
In news unrelated to that, I have just ordered the silk for the cutest little period embroidery project ever, which I charted out this weekend. I'm pretty sure of how the whole thing goes together, and it shouldn't take me 'til next year to get it finished (it's a couple of months of work, tops). I'll post pics when I'm done. It's really cute, trust me.
Finally, just for grins, I found pictures of me at my fattest (roughly 195-200#):
And me now (135# or so):
I keep these pictures as a reminder.
