I hope this doesn't sound boastful - it's not meant to be - I just want to share this. My ds, who is 12, is taking her Grade 5 clarinet exam at this very minute!!! I am so proud of her achievement but I am sat here sooooooo nervous, much worse than she was before she went in. I suppose it is because I can't do anything about it. By the way she definately does not get her musical talents from me!!! I can just about tell one end of the clarinet from the other.

Thanks for listening/reading - hope you're having a good day

Thats lovely. I hope she does well.

Can I add my own moment of pride? I was feeling it today watching my dd's Barbie of Swan Lake DVD (with ds3) Dd loves ballet and, although I have never had any interest in ballet myself, I thought how lovely it would be if dd could one day dance well enough to be in some sort of production.

good luck to your dd - let us know how she gets on

Thanks everyone - she should be out in about 2 mins!!!!!

It is great to see them perform at whatever level. Hope the ballet goes well - perhaps you could take it up aswell!

She was really pleased with how it went - thinks she got some good scores. We should know within 2 weeks if she has passed and at what level. I will post here.

Many thanks again everyone X
