Patience is a virtue!

Hi folks,

Remember when I said I was going to have the studio fixed up and ready to go by April? Yeah, that. Um. Ok, so the wall is still up and I STILL haven’t advertised the bed we foolishly bought for my step daughter which is taking up precious precious space in our little little house, but we ARE getting closer.

As you may have noticed, my sad old piano keyboard is fast reaching its use-by date, and I need to buy a new computer (why do these things always come in threes?!). But on the plus side, I’ve just called Hire-a-Hubby who will be coming to give me a quote this Friday on renovating the old studio (again).

Should that go ahead, we’ll definitely be able to move into the studio in Term 3. I’m frankly sick to death of dashing out to the printer and having to move my equipment in and out of the lounge room each teaching day. Not to mention the permanent state of my kitchen table as a study-and-office space at the moment!

Also in the news: Wednesdays are now up again as a weekly teaching day. If you wish to change your lesson day, check the timetable for your preferred day and get back to me!

Finally, a note on the progress of my dad, who has entirely curable stomach cancer. His operation is expected to take place in August some time. If that is the case, I’ve called my mum to see if she needs help during his convalescence, and I might head to Melbourne during that time, hence, I’m going to teach through the June/July school holidays for anyone who wants it.

Well, that’s all for now. I hope your year has been a good one thus far!
