|"I woke up this mornin'..."|
I got up before 5 because I'm speaking with my Italian mate at 7 and I had a few things to do before that.
We normally speak at 8 on a Saturday morning, but daylight saving has mucked that all up.
When daylight saving is not turned on, 8am in NZ = 8pm in Italia. Nice and easy.
As daylight saving kicks in in both countries, 7am in NZ = 9pm in Italia.
We both have to compromise. I get up earlier and Antonio goes to bed later.
We usually talk for over two hours - the first hour is in Italian and the second is in English.
Double bass practice will also feature today.
I've been practising three pieces for a performance in Newtown on Sunday evening. They have required hours and hours of practice. I'm trying to push my bass playing (which has been neglected a bit this year) up another notch.
Okay, I'm off now. Have a good day.
