I was trying to track down a violinist I once (many, many moons ago) shared a house with - and I think I've found her, teaching music and running the string orchestra at a German secondary school, which is pleasing as when we lost touch she was resigning herself to having to give up the fiddle altogether and getting a sensible office job. Bravo, Beaney, I'm so pleased you got back your mojo and your strings!
On the way to finding her, though, I also found this.
Which is irrelevent to my long-lost friend, but fascinating and funny - and oh, how many instances of this I have seen over the years!
