Whatever happened to the violin?

Whatever happened to your violin?, people sometimes ask as it was the violin that started all of my blogs in the first place. Well, the violin is fine, more or less. My daughter somehow managed to bump into it some time ago, so the bridge came out of place, but it is fixed now. At the moment I'm playing Bach, Offenbach and Slade. Not a bad mixture, I tell you. I'm not sure that my neighbours feel the same, though!
My daughter sometimes says that she wants to play the violin, too. Well, I don't think that a violin would last long in her hands and besides, small scale violins are so absurdly expensive. I'm contemplating buying her a keyboard instead. She has a toy one, and she can actually play small tunes on it. The other day I caught her playing the violin-part of Slade's "'Coz I Luv You" on it while singing some Kylie Minogue-hit: "La-la-la..." Interesting combination…
