No spending time in my "office" this morning. I'm up early and about to go to my Dad's house, then drive to Melbourne to look at a piano. We've been saving up for about a year, putting loose change, the odd note and portions of pocket money into The Piano Jar. Girl 1 even brought in the rule if you borrow from the piano jar you have to pay 10% interest back into it (which mainly applied to me)!! So the amount has steadily grown and we're ready to buy.
We always had a piano in the house when I was growing up, my Dad is a fabulous pianist and my Mum had her favourite few classical pieces she loved to play, very dramatically. I was fortunate enough to learn for a few years when I was young, but have not played for years and years, which is such a big, fat shame.
When the piano arrives we all want to play it. Girl 2 has been teaching herself, with her Pa's help, on Fridays after school when the girls go to my Dad's house. It could be a case of take a number and stand in line!
Do you have something extra special you're saving up to buy?
