I keep looking on a few pages on a site called Nextdoor where people post things for sale or free stuff.  Have seen several pianos but not quite what I was looking for.  Truth be known, I'd LOVE to have a player piano! That's what I had as a kid and it was fascinating to watch that roll of paper make the keys on the keyboard work.  When the time is right, it will happen.  Always does :)

Sheryl, what should they have used?   Everything that I paint is water-based in that it can be cleaned up easily with water.  Even the high gloss is water based.  I've used it for many years and never had a problem.  :animal01:

That is something that should have been picked up as soon as they started painting especially seeing that is there trade.
I am sure you will be glad when your house is finished.

Well painters have been here for two weeks already and coming back Monday & Tuesday to paint the remaining rooms two bedrooms and upstairs bathroom. Just as it's almost done we discovered today that they have used the wrong kind of paint (Water based Satin) on the Woodwork: i.e skirting boards, frames and Bannister. Now they won't finish for another week as they have to repaint all the woodwork in all the rooms with Gloss. So inconvenient as furniture has to be pulled out again and the carpet fitters are booked in next week....paint will probably not be dry so may have to postpone them.  No quibble with the painting, they came recommended and are fantastic at their trade, no quibble about that, very pleased but how can experts make such a school boy error as to use the wrong paint! My trust levels in workmen have never been great (due to past experiences) but now they are at an all time low!

LOL. I take a bath if I am going through a spell of not sleeping well. I pour a few drops of Lavender, Frankincense and Sandalwood Essential Oils (three favourites) into a bath of warm to hot water and that does the trick. I'm usually away with the fairies when my head hits the pillow.  I take showers mostly for convenience but not a huge fan of them. Appreciate that they are probably healthier than bathing.

Oh treat yourself to a Piano....why not?. I always had a piano as a child and took music lessons with the Royal School of Music, London for 5 or so years. Unfortunately the piano got sold with the house many years ago. I stopped playing the piano for almost 40 years until I purchased a Keyboard several years ago and got back into it. A keyboard is a compromise but you are right, it doesn't come close to the magnificent sound of a Piano.
