Finally, my dissertation is finished. It's at the binders, and I am handing it in on Friday. Phew. It has been a long summer, and a very enjoyable one, but I am looking forward to getting back to normal life.
I just picked up my cello today to play for the first time in 2 weeks. I had been putting it off, because I couldn't face spending any more time in my study that I already was, and as such I approached it with some trepidation! I was worried that I would have forgotten everything, and it would sound horrible. It did take me a few minutes to refamiliarise myself with the stuff I had been working on, but once I got into it, I'm sure it sounded just the same as before!
My fingers have lost a bit of their strength unfortunately, and my arms ache a bit now. It's amazing how quickly it all goes. I am looking forward to a practise tomorrow, I'm going to go over some old stuff and see how it feels.
Glad to be back.
