Sounds really exciting. I started Grade 6 a short while ago and just felt I was going to connect with it all, and I do really enjoy it but I appear to run out of time in the week what with working full time, looking after my children and our house, Guides and working for Grade 6 piano.
Sounds like you had real fun and I am entirely jealous.
ps I forgot to add my husband to the list - I look after him too, although he doesn't like to admit it!!!!!
