wilbyhillbilly So,So Proud of Danny (11) So,So Proud of Danny 08 Mar 11

I am bursting with pride for my little boy Danny (9yrs) and I've just got to tell someone, so forgive me if you read this, but I really don't care, I am so proud.

Some of you may be acquainted with Danny through the video I did some years back now, before we were thrown out of house and home and had to start again in a foreign land (Yorkshire) :-).

Anyway we finally got settled in Castleton and Danny loved his new school, this week he is booked in at the Eskdale Festival of the Arts in Whitby in two solo spots and three school band spots so we are very excited.

Never before had we been involved in anything like this and did not have a clue what it was about until we arrived on Monday with Danny having to play piano in front of an adjudicator and audience as a competitor, (and we thought he was just playing for fun) but he did his pieces and we just couldn't believe it when he was given first place and received a medal and certificate.

Two hours later we had to go back again for him to play his tenor horn
solo (teacher had put him in) and he ended up getting second place in that. (His music teachers son won it)

Tonight we are off again as he is playing in the school Samba Band first and then the school ensemble. Then Friday he is playing again with the Whitby Junior Brass Band.

Our new life is turning out for the best after all, as some of you said it would when we thought it had all come crashing down. It's a bit of a struggle at the moment, but we will make it and probably be a lot stronger for it, although I am beginning to feel my 71 yrs now, but Danny gives me inspiration.
