Sorry I haven't been around much

........ but I do have a really good excuse. For the last 10 days or so and for the rest of this week my son has had band rehearsals every night for a very important competition. Ryan is extremely talented and plays the trombone for a brass band ranked 14th in the world. This obviously takes a huge amount of all our time up and is a massive committment for Ryan who is only 15years old. Anyway, on Friday this week we will be travelling down to London to compete in the National Finals of Great Britain.

This will be held in The Royal Albert Hall. Have you seen how big and grand it is .... my stomache is seriously in knots and I feel ill every time I see a picture of it. I am so proud of him and cannot wait to see him on stage. Please, please can you all wish his band good luck for what will be a tough competition. He is the only child in the band but he is incredible and I wanted you all to know (I think I am allowed to be proud, lol)

I will let you all know how he gets on next week when we get home. So until then, please forgive my lack of commenting or taking part in challenges.
Fingers crossed everyone!!!!!
