Of course, it's not really the Queen's birthday at all. But first, yesterday. We had our usual church service, and after that David and Matthew went off for an afternoon at Cathie's house, with the other church youth, while the rest of us had lunch and an afternoon at Ian and Judith's house, as Ian was replacing David's violin with a different one. Ian showed us a newly developed technique for the conversion of a violin to a viola. After that, home for a quiet evening. Monday, a day off for the queen.
