Another first today - I roasted a whole chicken and successfully made gravey. It was a cracker! So delicious! It's amazing what impresses my mum. She would not be more pleased if I had won a gold Olymic Medal. At least she knows she's in for roast diners when she's old!

Today, we went shopping and read the paper in Starbucks. A relaxing day. Normally I'm tormented on a Sunday. But because I went for a day out yesterday, I feel contented to be in the house.

I went over a couple of awkward phrases in the Mozart and tried playing some accompaniments for my pupils. Very frustrating.

Weather was a mixture of sunshine and showers.
