Magpie Monday - Second hand treasures

I spotted this link up for Magpie Monday on Me and My Shadow. Although I thought it was a great idea for a meme, I couldn't think of anything pre-loved that I had recently acquired...but blogs move in mysterious ways!

Miss Ony has recently started learning to play the keyboard at school, and had been practicing enthusiastically on our very old and very mini keyboard. Unfortunately, her keenness to play the Eastenders theme tune and When The Saints Come Marching In, finished the keyboard off.

Seeing that her birthday and Christmas have recently passed, there didn't seem much likelihood of her obtaining a new keyboard in the foreseeable future.

Me and My ShadowI decided to post on my local Freegle site to see if anyone might be generous enough to offer a keyboard for rehoming. Within 24 hours I had a reply from a lovely lady, and within 48 hours, we had become the proud owners of a new old keyboard. It works perfectly and has allowed Miss Ony to add Yankee Doodle Dandy and the first part of The Simpson's theme tune to her repertoire!
I'm now on the lookout for second-hand keyboard music books!

  1. Oh that's fabulous! The old "seek and ye shall find" philosophy.

    I've heard great things about Freecycle (it's called Freegle now, right?). I've given lots away through there but never been fast enough on the keyboard to get anything!

    Thanks so so much for linking up, hope to see you again xx

  2. Well done you!
    That is a very biblical reference from that ol' saucepot missielizzie!
    My #MagpieMonday took me into the realms of champagne this week over at
