The piano tuner is here this morning. He is tuning the piano that has sat idle in this house for a good 15 years. I actually wondered if he would be able to tune it at all, it's in such a bad way. However he cheerfully told me that, on inspection, it had been tuned once before. In 1932.
There are weird noises coming from my lounge. Very weird. I feel like I'm living out a bad 1920s horror movie score.
