I have some exciting music related news! I bought a bass flute :D

"What is a Bass Flute?" I hear you ask. To begin with, it looks like this:  12341410_10154389455134606_5918383108227072722_n

It plays a 3 octave range from the C below middle C, to the C two ledger lines above the treble stave (making it sit exactly an octave below the regular C flute we all know and love) The Bass flute I purchased is made by Trevor James, and it's so freaking  pretty.

Hands in front

I just wish I could play it properly. It's flute shaped, and the embouchure looks similar, and your fingering remains the same, but it's a whole new kettle of fish. I've only just worked out how to hold it properly :s

More details

 

Air support is very different as well, as it the use of the embouchure. It's really odd being terrible at playing a flute. But it's really fun learning a related instrument.

to the side

 

This is what I wore yesterday when I had some jammy fun times with a friend of mine. It was really hot, so I opted for airy, light clothes which helped to keep me relatively cool.

Hand on hip

 

I made these skorts over a year ago, and I've not worn them at all this year. I actually forgot how awesome they are to wear. I've got to make some changes to the pattern before I can sew a new set (Totally going to make them in full leg length as well!).

details

They're basically two half circles with extra bits... Gah, I'll just have to stop being lazy and make a tutorial...

I haven't always felt this way about Summer daylight hours. I can remember when I was 6 feeling annoyed that I had to be put to bed when the sun was still out because when the sun is out it's still day, and daytime is for play, not for sleep (my bedtime was 6:00 back then).

Over the last week or so I've noticed the sun setting a little earlier than it has been. I always have felt sad about this change in daylight hours. I do not enjoy winter. I find it cold and bitter. I hate the cold, I hate the rain, and I hate the dreary grey clouds. When the sky is chock full of drab, grey clouds, the world looses brightness and colour. The sun setting earlier is a very obvious and small reminder that winter is coming. (I know it's technically not coming for like 6 months, but, last year the temperature change/ overcast days came prematurely)

It also means I'm overestimating how long I can leave shooting my outfit, causing terrible lighting situations (Sorry!)
