Amazon delivered my birthday presents today – a slim brown carboard packet containing four wrapped pressies. I had the dvd of The Storyteller (volume two) for my inspiration and comfort, I had the special edition dvd of Finding Nemo, for my entertainment – yes, that’s right I haven’t seen it yet!

For my musical education I had Elgar’s and Dvorak’s Cello Concertos on cd, and also Elgar’s Enigma variations – useful for I will playing it on 5 June at the band’s next concert.

Thank you, family all!
