Hi, nice to get a reply. Yes, the Brits are all over the place, fortunately I can pass for German these days, at least until I start talking. (Since I am from Yorkshire, my accent sounds like Dutch, they tell me.)
Music; the only problem I have with MS - the only one that bothers me - is with the clarinet. I play in a local brass band, and when it gets tricky my left hand can lose interest. That's why I got the bass clarinet, slower notes. To make up for this it has a sound so deep I cannot describe it without breaking the forum guidelines. I also play in an amateur jazz band, and sing too, ah, the benefit of an old-fashioned English grammar school education.
We are a musical lot, yes, My kids play clarinet and drums. We could make a jazz band. My husband confines his interest to clapping politely and whistling the tunes. So as not to bother the neighbours I insulated a room in the cellar with egg trays, we can be as noisy as we like.
Why did you give up composing? Is MS a nuisance?
I found this site via my sister - hi Sue - who is also MS-bothered. I wanted to find a new forum because Igeli in Switzerland closed.
