During the winter when the bed and breakfast is quieter I can indulge in my various hobbies. Painting, sewing, knitting, crochet and of course cooking. In fact anything creative. Last year I also started to have piano lessons. Les surprised me with a lesson for a present and arranged with a friend to teach me. Sadly I didn’t get around to playing much during the summer as we were too busy so by the end of last year I had forgotten most of what I had been taught. However I have spent the time during the past few months practising and are just about to start lessons again I hope. So by next Christmas I might be able to play a few carols.
