Just me, my violin and some music….

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 8, 2015 and filed under blogjunemusic

I woke this morning full of grand plans for the public holiday only to discover the power was off. Not only was it off it stayed that way until midday. So no washing, no ironing (as if I was going to iron anyway), no netflix and no blogging! And I was a day behind again. […]

I really like the vest

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 6, 2015 and filed under blogjunemusictelevision

With winter weather sort of approaching here in regional Queensland it’s time to dig out the old winter woolies. A lot of the time it’s not actually cold enough for a coat with sleeves. Cue: vests. My mother is a big fan of the sleeveless vest. She has many. She wears them often. Imagine my […]

I blame Craig McLachlan

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 5, 2015 and filed under blogjunemusic

When I was a teenager I was a Bee Gees fan. (It is worth noting that this was in the late 80s when the Bee Gees were well past the height of their career). I blame Craig McLachlan. I don’t know if anyone else remembers a TV special of a Bee Gees concert introduced by […]

all pizzicato

Aaah….blogjune. I’ve already missed a day and the reason was….music. By the time I got home from school yesterday and then went out to a rehearsal it was 9:45 and I was not in a blog post writing kind of mood. I love rehearsals. More than performances. Last night was Bundaberg Sinfonietta which is a […]

John Denver and the Datsun 200B

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 2, 2015 and filed under blogjunelifemusicUncategorized

Yesterday afternoon I just happened to be listening to @TunnRocks as I frequently do. And suddenly amidst the twists and turns of rock and/or roll I heard something that made me think I had inadvertently changed the station. John Denver. Yes that’s right. He of Grandmother’s Feather Bed fame. Leaving on a Jet Plane. Rocky […]

Inspired by Kim, Patti and James: Blogjune 2015

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 1, 2015 and filed under blogjunelifemusic

I’ll begin with the usual apology. I cannot believe that I’ve not written a post since December 31. I’ve definitely thought about it. Perhaps I confused the posts I wrote for the work blog with my own personal blog. Either way, it’s the 1st of June and here I am looking down the barrel of […]

Last day of June

I was going to write something but decided to wrap up #blogjune with a song instead  

a (very) short history of me and blogging

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 29, 2014 and filed under bloggingblogjuneculturewriting

Tomorrow is the last day of #blogjune. How quickly it has made June zip by. Over the month the challenge to post something everyday has really made me reflect on the way my blog has changed over the years. A couple of days ago I tried to remember when and why I started blogging in […]

no tidy desks here thanks…I’m Wendy

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 28, 2014 and filed under blogjunelife

Today’s post is inspired by @SonjaBarfoed’s Cubicle Zoo which was inspired by Peter Green’s the personal touch . I’ll start by saying that I’m a little bit suspicious of people who have really tidy desks. It just doesn’t seem quite right. Or maybe that’s justifying my complete inability to work from a spotless, tidy desk. Whatever it […]

Owning my not-perfect

Posted by Wendy Davis on June 27, 2014 and filed under blogjuneculturelifemusic

I had an interesting conversation with my violin teacher at the end of my lesson today. We’d been working through some technical things, tiny micro-problems and challenges. We’d spent nearly half an hour on the first 8 bars or so the Beethoven G major Romance. Every time I played it, I was dissatisfied with the […]
