Yes I think that was it.  Now I've got to work out how to get the recording from my fairly new phone onto my computer so I can email it to my mother! 

Does he play it like this....https://www.youtube....d0Y8Hx_g&t=125s

After a fairly stressful day I walked through the village to the garage to collect my car. The elderflowers have just come into flower and the smell was intoxicating and fabulous and improved my mood no end! And the car didn't cost nearly as much add I expected.

Nice! Have you tried making elder flower sorbet? It’s a while - I have not made it recently, but it was easy, and very popular.

I might do that. I've got an unopened bottle of elderflower cordial that I made last year...

I have two gallons of elderflower 'champagne' brewing at the moment. It's in a pressure barrel with a safety release - I've vivid childhood memories of exploding bottles with glass and fizz everywhere!

I had a blood test at the hospital today.

Time between leaving the flat and getting back in - 30 minutes to the nearest second!

Sometimes you can be very lucky.  I had a referral for a knee Xray. No appointment , you just go along and present doctors form..   The hospital car park is free for 20 mins, then £3.20.  I made it back to the car within the 20 mins.  (But there was 10 mins driving time each way, so about 40 mins altogether)

It was my boys' old piano teacher's concert today. So much more relaxing when you don't have a child playing! And lovely to see everyone progressing from year to year.

Have been recording myself in preparation for exam at end of July. It is reassuring to hear that some of the things I thought were car crashes are not as bad as I thought they sounded when I was in the process of crashing.
