Dot calls anxiously, "Mind the paintwork, that HB decorator is far too busy to come and touch it up for us!"

Nan replies crossly, "She could have put a hall in this house, it's such a nuisance having to bring everything in through the kitchen."

She perks up when the first record begins to play, and tired Nan listens delightedly to the delicate strains...
