Just in case nobody heard me screeching about it from this little corner of Scotland.....
I've bought a VIOLA!!!!!! *blush*
When will it arrive? What size is it? Any idea what you're going to call it? Have you bought lots of alto clef music yet? How did your violin react? How did your violin teacher react? Did you tell your violin teacher you were planning to buy one? Were you planning to buy one? Have I run out of questions yet?.......
Oh my goodness (again).. I haven't thought of a NAME
I'll have to wait until we're formally introduced to see if it's a boy or a girl. (It's a 'student' model, I do know that). I've just been surfing for the new strings and bridge it will probably need... and I've been drooling over some viola bows...
STOP STOP!! Actually I haven't broken the news to Martha (my violin) yet but I did email the model page to my teacher and she reckoned to go for it! Well, if it doesn't work out there's always the Rest Home for Discarded (Cheap) Violas!
I've just had an email to say it's been shipped so it will take about a week to get here.
No..! It wasn't a plan... it sort of just happened... just like the last puppy (which brought us to seven dogs) but I'm not planning to collect seven violins or violas
But the last puppy was sooo cute and the viola has a lovely shade of chin-rest...
I just phoned my husband and he said "hmmmm"
I just phoned my Dad and he said "oh well......"
Can you tell I'm excited yet?
