So both big bro and little bro have been nagging me about my lack of blogging. Little bro wouldn't even accept my valid excuse of being extremely busy and actually not being at a pc to blog most of the time (and we will be seeing his blogs very soon?!?!?!?!?). So here dearest bros is a blog from your long lost sister. I have since recuperated from my lurgy and am actually on holidays. Aha! I hear you cry. So now you have the time to blog! I have just been called up last minute (less than 24 hours) to go into the orchestra. I don't quite know how I feel about that. I was really looking forward to my holidays because last term was a real doosey but now I've basically lost a week due to rehearsals. I'm happy about the experience and the music (all spanish) and of course the paycheck but I really needed the time out. The playing work has also been few and far between this year due to upheavals in my particular section so I am grateful to get some. So I really shouldn't whinge.
So bros, I will try harder (I hear Master Yoda's voice in my head "there is no try, only do or do not") and I do actually read your blogs religiously so I am there in spirit just not always in words.
