The end of Term 2

Hi Folks,

This week is the last in term 2, as on Thursday my family and I head to Spain and France for a long holiday. We’re very much looking forward to this break and will mostly be out of email or phone contact, so don’t even try to call!

Next term starts a bit awkwardly. I have written that we are beginning on Tuesday 21 July, but I think we will recommence a week earlier as on Tuesday 21 July I have my PhD graduation ceremony at 2pm. I’m not missing the opportunity to wear a funny hat and gown and hold an empty tube (I already have my certificate!) and frogmarch across a stage while my name is flung at me from a distance. Yes, graduation ceremonies at UQ are fun affairs, full of pomp and ceremony. Not. Usually they are very quick and not even my PhD thesis title is read out.

This means that those Tuesday lessons are postponed AGAIN. Please let me know if you would like a lesson on the Monday afternoon instead and I’ll see what I can manage.

So singing lessons recommence on Tuesday July 14, to cut a long story short!

As to all the studio talk, well, the architect has been paid. The builder is doing a detailed costing. I’m not sure but I’m hoping the plans are going in front of council as we speak but information about this is not yet forthcoming.

I DO know that when we finally get started it will all happen very quickly.

So happy holidays folks and see you in July!
