Jake (one of the twins) is back from University for the summer and has been working all of it - he's a sailing coach and crew on the local ferry. He has what amounts to a full time wage and so has saved a lot of money, which he needs to see him through next year.
In his spare time he's picked up one of my guitars and (incredibly) learned to play it to a high standard in just several months. He's a genuinely gifted kid ! I'd say he's doing grade six stuff already.
His birthday is looming so we're going out to town so he can try out some steel strings (he has my Yamaha classical at the mo.) Project Music, Mansons and maybe the Music Centre the other side of the city. It'll be fun even if I'm not the one buying. And a trip to the pub of course.
Target £300. I'd encourage him to go to £500 for the one. Money from wages, gramps and us.
(The other twin couldn't find work in time owing to the awkward dates of his exams but has used his innitiative and become a Deliveroo rider instead... on my bike ! I'm proud of them both ! There are members of our family in their thirties who have never ever worked because 'there are no jobs'... apparently.)
