Almost ready to record

I have a first go at recording my ARSM diploma programe tomorrow - I've done a few rehearsals already but tomorrow it is on a rather different piano, a Steingraeber piano at Shackleford's a local piano dealer. If it doesn't work tomorrow I have another morning booked, so I can choose the best recording for submission.

Swans

On a walk this week along the canal I passed 2 swans who were clearly far more interested in potential prey in the water rather than the threat from a human, I was little more than 1 metre from them.
