Partita in E major
The D Minor although not as technically difficult is just beautiful.
Partita in D Minor
Mozart Piano Concerto 20
However, not everyone would be in agreement about the beauty of his compositions:

One of my babies looks like she is going to seed. The rain obviously wasn't a substitute for the normal daily water dose from me. I administered 3 times the normal dose of h2o last night and there has been precipitation in the night. My little "eden" in 't back yard has given me so much pleasure this year. Next year plan to grow the bedding plants from seed. Concrete to floral tapestry!

In the workplace..
- cool, calm and collected under pressure
- a fount of knowledge and wisdom
- always ready to drop the urgent task I am working on and go and help a colleague in need
- the ultimate groovy chick
- domestic goddess
- a limitless capacity to absorb and meet the needs the others
Really surprised to find myself overcome with emotion when Mum, Dad and Wills junior stepped out of the hospital and we saw the little dote all bundled up for the first time. Something struck me though which was poignant and in some ways a sad reflection on the state of our nation.
We see a couple, married for 2 years, committed to each other and obviously deeply in love. This child has been born into an obviously loving and stable home and will be brought up by a Mum and Dad in partnership together. Setting aside the small issue of being third in line to the throne I think it is just that which makes this such a beautiful media opportunity. What we see, as they stand next to each other holding the little bundle is a picture of marriage and the family. Something which is being more and more eroded in our nation. Why is marriage such a good thing? Because it is God's idea. One of the first things he does in Genesis is create the ordinance of marriage. So I'll leave God's word with the last say:
But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said,“This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
