What's this I hear from Anne about your taking up another instrument late in life (this after the violin and voice in your thirties)? I know it's only the recorder, and it's kind of trendy, making regular appearances on Young Musician of the Year finals etc, but isn't it just an out-of-tune wind that (almost) nobody blows good?..
