The last day of June June 30, 2013

This is one of my all time favourite songs…and bonus it’s called the last day of June. Love.

to be an “accompaniste” June 29, 2013

I’ve finally started going through the treasure trove of choir programs and newspaper articles that date back to 1977. I’m scanning them in preparation for my cultural heritage research project. So hurrah for me in making a start. Today this caught my eye in a program from 1982. I wonder if I will ever graduate […]

blogjune: a lesson in writing June 28, 2013

Friday night doesn’t seem to be the best time for coming up with an interesting blog post. I am determined not to miss another day though with June fast coming to an end. If anything, this year’s blogjune has made me realise how little time I spend writing. If you can be bothered trawling back […]

5 things about me June 27, 2013

These seems to be a little meme-ish today with the blogjune people so I’m giving it a go. 1. I haven’t eaten chicken for the last 19 years 2. I lived and worked in Hervey Bay for nearly three years in my early 20s. 3. I named my first cat Daphne after the character in […]

trending June 26, 2013

Today was the day my name trended on Twitter. They like me. They really like me. Actually they like Texan democrat Wendy Davis who made it through a 14 hour filibuster in an attempt to delay an anti-abortion vote. It ended in confusion¬†but was a mighty effort. Here’s my fake moment of twitter fame. Glad […]

Monday pearls June 25, 2013

Could there have been a nicer start to the week than the gift of a pair of freshwater pearl earrings? I think not. After groaning my way to work on Monday morning and forgetting to put on any jewellery in the process, I was beautifully surprised by one of my dear colleagues who has just […]

bamboo handles June 23, 2013

I bought this bag for 12 dollars at a second hand shop in Tasmania recently. It’s green silk with bamboo handles.   I love it.

silver, scarf, soup, screencasts, spacey June 22, 2013

I am in a better mood today (in comparison to yesterday’s post). After a yummy scrummy breakfast at Saskia’s I bought myself a little present. Why? Because we all deserve presents for being awesome and it’s perfectly acceptable to buy them for yourself. ¬†   It’s been at least six weeks since I added to […]

Musing on nitwits June 21, 2013

Sometimes people say nitwit type things that are annoying. Example: Nitwit: What are you going to do when you leave work? Me: Finish my Masters in Library and Information Science. Teach the piano. Nitwit: Oh lovely. I can just see you in a library. Now, you might be wondering, Wendy, what’s the problem with that […]

View from the piano June 20, 2013

Here is a snippet of rehearsal on Monday night. Recorded in a very diy fashion with my iPhone. There were some strong basses missing and I was closest to sopranos so they come through more clearly than other parts.
