1) Today I was due to play a concert with the county school of music brass band. There is a free bus service from Oswestry that takes me to a school at Shrewsbury which leaves at 8:30 from Beauclerks garage. Unfortunately I got out of bed too late and missed the bus. In the end I took the train instead.
2) Upon getting to St. Mary’s church where we were due to play carols, I realised I had left both of my mouthpieces at home. I was forced to borrow a small bore mouthpiece from a trombonist named Chris. Since my euphonium is a large bore instrument it was necessary to jam it in using a piece of paper.
Side note: today I recieved an offer from the University of Birmingham for a maths & physics course. They require that I get an A in both physics and maths. In practice I am unlikely to achieve an A in physics.
