So the heavy lifting brigade are coming on Thursday (thanks Dave!) and in the meantime, I had a flash of inspiration. The piano was firmly positioned on the chest of drawers, and could be plugged in. The wire to the speakers wouldn't reach, but I have headphones, so the only thing I was really missing was the pedals. But who needs pedals to play Bach and Mozart? I've been sitting in my bay window in the sunshine for the last couple of hours, revelling in the beautiful sound of my gorgeous new instrument and grinning with joy at being able to make music again. The piano makes an absolutely fantastic sound, and I can't wait to hear it with speakers and pedals and to see it all finally put together. It may have cost a lot of money, but it was worth every penny. I'm officially in love.
