Now that we are well into the bleak month of January and the house has returned to its normal self after Christmas it has occurred to Katinka that she needs to entertain us!
|close encounter with books on music|
As regular readers of our blog will know she has always been a bit of a 'tinker' with a nose for anything naughty. Her latest 'thing' is a keen desire to improve her knowledge of things musical. Some of our books on music -- including amongst others, tomes on the likes of John Peel, U2, and Bob Dylan -- line the top of the bookshelves in our living room. It seems that Katinka's New Year's resolution is to become better acquainted with these hardbacks and the musical information contained therein! The fact that it is lovely and warm so close to the ceiling is, of course, of no significance whatsoever.

Katinka has even roped Shadow in on this act. He has taken to sleeping on the piano in Niall's study; happily dreaming of bright lights and performing center stage. Sadly, he is not keen on having this registered on camera. She, of course, has no such inhibitions!!
|enjoying U2 and Dylan...|
Progress is being made, both can now do very creditable impersonations of Stockhausen if we leave the piano lid open. We are awaiting their first recital with interest!!
