Ovingdean - again!

If you weren't there, you missed a great course. We had so much fun (there was also lots of hard work). I haven't got round to finding the cameras to download all of the photos yet.

Getting ready for Ovingdean - FluteOwe'en

On Thursday we are off to Ovingdean Hall again for another course.


There are lots of reasons to celebrate at the moment. Lucy Smith has just had her grade 8 flute exam result - and she passed with distinction!

What I'm doing

Andy is away on holiday this week so life is a little bit different.

More about the new website

Progress on the new website stuff is progressing really quickly now. It's all being kept secret - even Liz hasn't seen all of it (which is mainly because she is so busy with so many other exciting Flutewise things!) - but it is well worth the wait. One thing that is requested (quite a lot!) is merchandise. T-shirts, mugs, pens and pencils are ideas that have been kicking around for a while. We've looked around various sources and there are - literally - thousands of different products that we can make Flutewise-y. It'd really help us if you could let us know what you would like to see. There's a poll after the break (if you click on the "more" link after this post) which has ten options that seem the most likely - but if you have any other ideas please send us your comments. What would you like to see? "I would like to see some of those strange, little, furry bugs with the ribbons attached to the bottom." That kind of thing. Let your imagination fly - we could even have Flutewise roller blinds! Thanks, Andy.

How would you respond?

I always like to respond to emails as quickly as I can. I don't always manage, but I do my best. I received one the other day that I don't really know how to respond to.

Flutewise things

It's a bit of a boring time of year, lots of work being done but not much to show for it. Our three main areas of work are:
  • the website (you'll notice big differences soon)
  • market
