Yesterday was my big day - and what did I do? Hundreds of things except celebrate. Sunday was just a short run through in the morning and then the big concert in the evening in the "Rheingoldhalle" in Mainz singing/playing Haydn's Creation. After that it was say good bye to mom and run home - get a cake done. Can't have a birhtday without a cake.
My mom left me some presents - she drove in for the concert - and a friend send some. So with my cake I had a lovely cleberation at 7:00am unwrapping some of the presents. Does my age mean I'm too old to get all my presents wrapped? I have to say if that's the case then I don't want to get older.
Then I was off to start the last week of lectures - which the usualy Monday morning programm until 2 o'clock which left me with about an hour to catch up on some sleep, answer a few phonecalls and get ready to drive to Frankfurt for some more rehearsing and another concert. I sure can think of a nicer way to spend my birthday than standing through a two hour concert. Yeah I'm not so upbeat - someone forgot my birhtday - again.
