Gosh, it's been an age since I posted on the forum. But I had an excellent time at tower practice on Wednesday and I had to share this with people who would understand.

I started going to tower practice and handbells a few months ago. I'm learning quite slowly, especially in tower, where I get maybe 10 minutes of handling during a two hour practice, but things seem to have clicked at last - I'm pulling both strokes in rounds and I'm in control of the bell (which wasn't always the case, at least until about three practices ago).

And more exciting still - I've now managed (twice!) to ring a touch of Bob Minor on handbells with someone calling changes.

It's all finally starting to make sense!
