My January challenge was a musical one and one that required practice and patience.
But I nailed it! (sort of…) I can totally play Fall To Pieces without even needing the music now and I can pretty much get through Someone That you’re With without having to stop and work out where on earth to put my fingers for Bb. I still can’t exactly sing them in tune but meh, when I’m just playing for fun it doesn’t really matter, right?
I even perfected playing The Eagles’ Lyin’ Eyes as well, just because.
I have now started trying to learn a few more chords so I can expand my repertoire. Which is only ever enjoyed by myself and occasionally the kids but still, variety is the spice of life and all that!
You might remember back at the start of the month I took up Tiddlyompompom’s ‘January Challenge’ and set myself the task of packing my maternity bag for hospital by the 31st, ready for BabyBump’s arrival some time in February (due 27th).
Well I’ve done it! See:
Bag for BabyBump, Bag for me.
This time around I have packed towels, a toothbrush and a hairbrush and other little things (like slippers) that I neglected to include last time, when I seemed to forget that I would be there too and only really packed for Baby.
All that’s left to go in is my camera and camcorder and my dressing gown – but they are all still currently in use and will have to be remembered on the day and flung in at the end. I have charged up the spare batteries for the cameras though and packed them.
Now it’s just a waiting game to see when these adorably tiny clothes are going to be filled with a small person – and find out who said small person is – girl or boy and, you never know, we might even agree on a name some time too…
