Susanna was very excited today to receive a special package from Switzerland – her new Willson Euphonium, which, as she put it, is one the shiniest things she has ever seen.
For us it is the culmination of probably hundreds of hours spent trying to source a replacement instrument after her old one was damaged beyond repair last year when she slipped on ice (there is a lesson here – always do what your father tells you – in fact it’s a good theological lesson too! ). We have to say though that the insurance company, Hanover, have been very good.
So despite the aggravation, it looks great and sounds better! Susanna er fornøyd (satisfied).
