Something new and beautiful

Just a few words tonight. More of a show and tell really, as there's been a very exciting and beautiful addition to the Bethan household in the past couple of weeks. My Grandad was a very generous man and with the money he left to me, it seemed the right thing to invest in a piano of my own. Grandad was a massive champion of me in pursuing musical abilities. He would always ask about my progress, gave me lifts to many of my grade exams, attended pretty much every orchestra or choir concert I was a part of and wasn't the slightest bit shy or modest if people asked him how I was getting on! So a few months ago I began my search for 'the one', the right sound and look, an instrument that would stay with me for many years to come and that would honour Grandad's memory and be a lovely reminder of him. Then on my birthday, we met for the first time, and I must say it was love at first play. The piano has now been in situ for two weeks and totally makes this house a home. I am loving winding down with a 'tootle' after work or blasting out a show tune on a Saturday afternoon. So here's a little taste of the music that's moved into our house, it's by no means note perfect, but this one's for you Grandad, love you and miss you loads. Thank you for such a beautiful gift.
