It was time to say good bye to my Double Bass adventure.
It has been picked up again to travel back home.
What a great adventure and experience it was!
It is an amazing instrument and not that easy. It made me admire and respect the Bass players who so easily improvise.
I had such a great time learning it
I loved every minute of it.
I can only recommend,
if you want to try something you are passionate about...
go for it....
you might love it,
and you will always remember it.
Here are some Blues I learnt with ‘You Tube’ backing tracks:
To finish off a riff
Hope you enjoyed the odd Blues.
I have recorded more so I can always listen and remember the time with my Double Bass fondly.
A big THANK YOU to my sister who made this adventure possible.
It was time again to sort a bit in the attic.
I found more fun stuff from 50 years ago from my school life.
My homework Autumn 1971 – you might recognize some ???
The seasons 1971
As you can see I couldn’t draw well, so for some of the homework I asked my mum or my sister to draw for me. – Clearly July and August were done by my substitutes. 🙂
- Be punctual !
- Line up in front of the School !
- Go slowly and quietly up the stairs !

It is lovely to go down memory lane
I quite enjoyed school and was a very quiet and obedient pupil.
Happy is the person
who knows what to remember of the past,
what to enjoy in the present,
and what to plan for in the future.

Wishing all a wonderful not so busy weekend!
This post is for my Cornish Blogger friend Sally.
Referring to my last post from Kew, Sally asked about the Haikus in Kew Gardens – she would love to read them all. I saw them written in Japanese.
I went back to Kew, back to the Haikus and looked closer.
Happy to say ….I did find a Haiku written in English 🙂
So here is one for you, Sally ♥
Bees happily hum
Wisteria vines strangle
Days bleed into night.
There is something so special
in the early leaves drifting from the trees -
as if we are all to be allowed a chance
to peel ,
to start again.
Smile at strangers
Say thank you
Give lots of compliments
Observe and listen
Wish others a lovely day
♥ Wishing you all a wonderful
and lovely Day ♥
Looking closer at an Agave at Kew Gardens, you can see clearly that every leaf has a unique pattern of the way it has grown from the inside.
The leaves have similar patterns but evey one is unique to its’ unfolding.
We are unique creatures, every one of us.
Don't be someone else.
YOU are a unique individual.
Be proud... rock it loud.
It is important that you declutter your home as we all know we keep too much.
Make space for the important things in your life.
Make space for things you really love and give you joy in life.
Decluttering emotionally is equally important.
Have enough space for the really important feelings and beliefs.
Why not have a go today to get rid of negative beliefs,
negative thoughts and emotions.
Start fresh every day with positive thoughts and beliefs.
♥Have a wonderfully, positive day! ♥
