Good things come to those who wait...

Today i have accomplished one of my life long dreams, i am now the proud owner of a piano. It's not much to ask for in life, i have always longed to have a piano to call my own, regardless of the fact i can't even play one, and I'm so excited that the fact it's completely out of tune and years old isn't dampening my mood...i love it.

As a kid along with learning a second language and becoming a multi millionairess, one of my ambitions was to someday learn to play the piano, unfortunately my parents couldn't afford the lessons and I'd already blew a small fortune of what little spare cash they did have on pointless singing lessons. My poor mum didn't have the heart to tell it like it is and say no to singing lessons even though i am completely tone deaf, now that's love for you. I can't wait for the girls to have a go at playing our new to us piano and hopefully one out of the four may show a little potential.

It must be my lucky day as not only do i now have a piano to call my own i finally have a car that's my own too. Yes after the catastrophe of our little french trip back in February i have struggled with four kids and no mummy bus, it's been a long hard slog but i can now get back some normality in my life, today really does feel like the fresh start i missed back at the beginning of September when Mia's first day back to school was tarnished by my terrible parenting. Life's looking good right now!

  1. funny....I've always wanted a piano. In fact, my daughter loves tinkling around on my mum's baby grand....would like to think that might get passed down this way at some point.

  2. We have an out-of-tune piano as well, and I have the idiot's guide to piano playing on standby for when we finally get it tuned. Don't put it off! Ours has been in our house about ten years now, and still not tuned.

  3. We had an old, out of tune piano at my parents house, i too loved it regardless. Then one day,i came home to discover my dad had chopped it up and buried it in the garden! If he wanted rid of it, surely someone else wanted it?? Or at least burn it for firewood?? What a waste! i was devastated!

  5. We've got my husband's granny's family piano which is about 85 years old now. I can play but the problem is the children hate me playing it! And I can't play it when they're in bed because it's too loud. So it's out of tune and unplayed at the moment, until I force the children to have lessons (actually I won't, only if they want to).

  8. Congratulations on your piano. I bought myself a piano - so old it has ivory keys - with my first book advance.

  9. Oh I love a piano. It really makes a home. Never had one as a kid and bought mine, much to Hubby's disapproval.

    Just something that you must have. Good for you. Happy clinking!

  10. I'm so with you. I've always wanted a piano too (and can't play either). Still trying to find someone who teaches children around here because I really want my eldest to start learning (she's 5). Really pleased for you that one of your dreams has come true. yay. Here's to more and more dreams xx

  11. Well done on reaching one of your goals. May you enjoy many a happy session of plinky plonking! Also, congrats on climing up the Tots 100 index - must be the piano effect :-)

  12. That brings back memories. I played the piano for years when I was a kid. My parents insisted I went to lessons and I eventaally passed my Grade 7 by the skin of my teeth. I've never touched a piano since!

  13. I'm sorry we didn't find each other sooner, I inherited a piano with a house I bought a few years ago and not having any musical ability I 'gave' yes gave it away to a friend, who had it returned and repolished. It now stands proudly in her living room.....and I must admit I'm a bit jealous I didn't see what it could be.

    Happy tinkling on the ivories.
