|Spot who is lurking behind the pots|
Subsequently we have had these chimney pots removed and some new, rather squat ones installed to replace them, complete with bird guards.
At the same time it was suggested that we should have the main chimney lined ready to install a multi fuel stove. Well they did have great difficulty getting the 'cherry picker' round the back of the house and it was something they would not be in a hurry to repeat, particularly as they were under threat of death if they damaged any of my newly planted hedge.
Much to my surprise, we also now have a lovely little Aga multi fuel stove installed and working. It looked so nice in our tatty lounge that I decided perhaps I better take the wallpaper off, a lot of which was coming off anyway. It has given me the opportunity to check to see if the walls under the windows have cracks which need pinning before the builders depart. I spent all Saturday taking the wallpaper off and now have the walls to wash down with sugar soap.
Did get my Yorkshire Travelling Journal completed and posted off to Harrogate which is an achievement as it is two weeks early.
