July 8, 2006 at 10:07 AMHi everyone, its a long time since I have been on this website due to the fact that my computer has been down. But I am now on holiday visiting relatives in the beautiful city of Perth, Australia, and they have broadband so here I am! It is winter here so it gets dark really early, its not even 6 oclock yet and its pitch black. Today I went to the beach with my uncle and saw lots of surfers, I think there was some kind of event on because it was really busy. The weather here is lovely, its about 22-24 with a nice breeze and hardly a cloud in the sky. If we get a day like that in england everyone rejoices but it seems to be like that every day here. Its great! Today I practiced my violin for the first time since monday, which is the most time that I have had off from playing probably since I started the instrument. It didnt feel much different really, but I suppose it will catch up with me if I dont do some more work soon. I only played Czardas, I need to do some work on Bach and Mozart soon though if im serious about putting a recital on. But id rather go down and swim in the sea! Haha. But with no teaching commitments for 9 weeks, hopefully I might be able to do both. Australia kicks ass!
