I haven’t been all that well for the last couple of days. I think I’m slowly fighting off a cold or a throat infection, or something equally thrilling. So today I’ve tried to take it slowly, ignoring the guilt that usually comes with not rushing around trying to do a thousand things. I’ve had a very quiet day, listening to music and doing a little research here and there for some classes I’m planning and some things I’m writing.
Over the weekend, I went up to Maitland for the birthday party of a very good friend of mine from high school. It was a lovely weekend — I hope she had as nice a time as I did. And perhaps because I spent some time over the weekend reminiscing, I’m now listening to a Coldplay album that I played to death throughout high school. At some point I either bought or was given the sheet music for their first album, Parachutes, and learnt to play and sing a number of the songs, just in case having them on repeat on my CD player wasn’t enough. This was one of my favourites.
Throat infection or not, I’m about to go and sit at the piano to try and play this song again.
(Happy birthday Rylie!)
