One of the things I have realised that I am worrying about is my musical instruments. There is a small harp that I have that I haven’t even played in the last 2 years or so, possibly more because I don’t have time, but my 2 instruments that I will so miss are my electric violin and clavinova piano. The violin I can probably take with me but the piano just won’t be able to.
I have played the organ since I was 10 years old and started teaching when I was 18. Over the years I had different instruments and then ended up with a digital piano (clavinova). Even though I don’t play much anymore I am so going to miss having it around because music has been a big part of both of our lives for 30 years now. Roy and I both play. The things that we have worked so hard for over the years are just going to be so painful to sell. I think this is why I started to panic and worry so much last night. Reality is starting to hit. It is a huge step to make to give up your home that you have loved for so long without having any doubts.
Arrived at work this morning with anxiety because of lack of sleep and worrying. I think it was something that would probably have happened at some point. Had a quick chat with my work colleagues about it and I felt better in no time. Work is good at the moment and keeping me very busy. I don’t teach music anymore, I even was a church organist for 3 years but now I am doing something totally different. I now work at an air rifle factory called Daystate. Most of the time I love it. It is really interesting and quite fascinating. http://www.daystate.com
Almost the weekend and I am really looking forward to it. Hoping to head off on Foxglove at some point. Let’s hope for dry weather and plenty of photo opportunities.
