Lego, Paper Peacock and Grand Piano

31 May

1   Jake, 3, plays with such concentration with his Lego.

Serious concentration

2   We went to Truro this afternoon and went to the Lemon Street Market cafe for a chocolate brownie and a coffee. Floating above the shoppers is this beautiful paper sculpture of a peacock.

3   Upstairs, as well as the coffee shop, is a gallery and there is a beautiful baby grand piano with this notice on it inviting anyone to play! I would so love to play it but will have to have rather a lot more lessons before I’m ready for concert playing!

Do read this notice on the piano!

Today, at the end of my 7th month of blogging , I’ve reached 6366 viewings in 77 countries and 500 likes. Thank you so much to all my readers for your loyalty, your comments and likes-  all of which are greatly appreciated. I’ve also just been nominated for the Sunshine Award by about which I am both delighted and flattered and about which – more later………

Thank you all.

    These are all so nice for children, especially during their early ages… Lego keeps their imaginary strong and paper art is another touches for their creative mind and finally piano, music, how beautiful for their soul…. Actually dear Sally (I hope I am not making mistake about your name) these are so nice for us too… Anything in creative world or art feeds our souls and makes us to feel better… I know because of myself… I am still crazy with these Lego toys 🙂 But you can ask me is there anything that doesn’t make you crazy 🙂

    Little young man so lovely, Blessing him. And the piano and the idea to be played by anyone just FASCINATED me… This should be the beauties of your culture. Thank you dear, have a nice day, with my love, nia

      Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It is lovely to invite just anyone to play the piano isn’t it? A most generous and happy thing to do.
      I so agree about all the creative things to stimulate children.
      Thank you again for calling in
      Sally 🙂

    I figure the Lego is a wonderful learning curve
    for children of all ages, I rather like building the
    odd rocket or crane for my nephews, so Lego
    suits the bigger kid’s also 🙂 lol

    I agree about stepping on them! Ouch! There was once a teenage boy playing there and he was so good, it was a delight to hear – and to see his skill 🙂

    love legos–except stepping on them; so wish I could play the piano–what a lovely invitation

      PS I didn’t start learning the piano until I was past 60and I’m really enjoying it! There’s time yet for you to learn! 🙂

        I am almost there – good for you – have to add something more to my life list – bucket lists are too sorrowful

          Life list sounds much better! Is bucket list an American expression? I only came across it as I started blogging.Actually, I’ve just googled it and discovered it comes from a film – the things two terminally ill men want to do before ‘they kick the bucket’. That reinforces my liking of your words – life list! 🙂
