The doctor said, "Oh, you've got bones missing at the front of your feet". Really? That was news to me because my feet are...well, my… Continue reading Scaredy Cat Challenge – Spring in my Step
If you've been following my Scaredy Cat Challenges, you'll know that I started learning piano in September. Today I had my fourteenth lesson (each lesson lasts half an hour). It was a turning point.

He said it in Danish,… Continue reading Scaredy Cat Challenge – Old Dogs and New Tricks
