One Piano Happy Blogger

So, I finally got the piano I’ve been chasing for months. Total cost: free. I had trawled through the buy and sell with no real joy (budget was 200 Euro and no more), checked out a few second hand piano shops (who had advised me I’d be looking at 1800 quid upwards) but as fluke…
