Dear Kitty,
             One of my friends has lent me a ukulele for the summer. It's not going well - very much like my guitar playing. I'm trying at them, and it's just not working! It's very frustrating because I'm used to being able to pick up an instrument like a violin or a cello or a clarinet and be able to make an 'ok' sound. The guitar is so much harder! Also the C string on the ukulele isn't right for the frets so I can't play anything in tune on it. In the meantime, I think I'll stick to piano, and maybe steal my brother's harmonica when I get home.
Nothing new otherwise.
Yours,
          Francesca
