The year is wrapping up and that means that piano teaching is also being put on hold for the holiday season. We had our annual ‘Purely Piano Play-out’ concert on the weekend and it was so great to see the improvement that’s taken place over the course of the year. A number of the students have hit that point in their music education where lots of the connections have been made and they’re just flying – three students had their Book 1 Concert Set performance which was such a big achievement! Seeing the progress of your students is the best present that any teacher could have for Christmas but these were kinda cool too:
That last one is ‘Hot Chocolate in a Jar’ from the same family that put together ‘Cookie in a Jar‘. I love the creativity, time and effort put into these eatable gifts – and they’re pretty yummy too ^^.
In other news, I got another haircut hehe! I really like what the hairdresser did last time so I went back and asked for a bit of shorter cut, perming the fringe again. She offered to curl it for me so that I could learn how to do it up for future events… so please excuse me as I indulge in a little sel-cam action:
And one without the glasses:
Obviously it won’t stay this style once I wash it again but I kinda like it :). Though, I feel extremely Asian (more than usual) as a result… I feel like one of those Korean movie stars hehe!
Also, two items arrived in the mail today:
I bought a one with this design about two years ago but it had been a size too small… it was my favourite tee so I would wear it anyway but it was always too tight for my liking HENCE when Threadless Tees had their $10 sale after exams, I thought I should reward myself :D.
Thanks Ange! I love Christmas cards (but only the ones that have a meaningful message in them) and yours warmed my heart :). Can’t wait for 2012! I have put a little something together in response but that’ll get posted later ;).
Hope all the uni students have been making the most of their time off from the books and everyone is enjoying the festive season :).
