    Having music in the family is lovely. I hope that Little Man will continue to enjoy learning and playing the violin. It’s probably been about sixteen years since I last read The Lovely Bones too but it’s one of those books that’s stayed with me. Glad you enjoyed the play. Thanks for hosting #WotW and hope you have a lovely weekend x

      Definitely, it’s written from the point of view of the dead girl, very interesting and moving. I’ve just got my copy of I Capture the Castle which is next on my list 🙂

    Love the violin! I’ve become quite fond of classical music over the past couple of years due to my studying. I’ve had to listen to a lot and discovered a new found love of the violin. Hope to see your little man at the symphony hall in a few years 😉 #WotW

      Now wouldn’t that be lovely, but I doubt he will stick with it, he’s not got the patience. I’ve been on the stage at Symphony Hall! It was were I went to collect my degree 🙂

    It’s great the kids are learning to play musical instruments. My youngest tried the violin and wasn’t keen she did love the trombone and has recently got a guitar and is teaching herself to play by watching YouTube.
    It sounds like you enjoyed the play. I’m off to read your review now. x

    I haven’t read the book, but wasn’t it a film too? It rings a bell. My son plays guitar, he’s now doing it in college, but started in primary. It’s lovely being surrounded by music, isn’t it?

    I love the idea of a purple violin. Hope Little Man discovers it is an instrument he enjoys playing. I never grow bored of hearing my lot practising their instruments. The play sounds amazing. Had a quick read of your write up. It would probably have me in tears. Wonderful that you were able to enjoy it with your eldest. What a treat!

    Hey Anne Sweet!!!
    I really enjoyed the post and very different proposal to submit the comment what i felt very grady to make a comment. I am a violin player not much good as a professional violinist. I started the journey to love with violin from when I was 4 years old and after that 8 years old i started to go for my violin classes. Now I am 23 years old and I can play the violin smoothly now.
    Thanks for the nice post.
