The tiles of the parquet floor in my house are popping out.

No matter how we try and fix the problem, we'll discover that another block in another section of the house has dislodged itself and needs repairing too.

But it can't be helped. My house is old, you see. It was built in 1974 and there's only so much one can expect of a 40-year-old building.

It's not just the parquet flooring that's acting up.
