Yesterday the scaffolding blokes came to take down the scaffolding from our Tudor chimneys. Ann made the three of them a quick cuppa, and then they got on with the job, and made a good quick job of it, too. I offered the senior man a tenner tip, which to my surprise he turned down flat (but very politely). He then went on to say, that as far as he could remember, this was the first roof they'd ever scaffolded, then unscaffolded, without breaking a single peg tile. We are very grateful, gentlemen.
The above chimney on the left has always leaned drunkenly, and still does. David has put a new chimney pot (well aVictorian one - Doulton) on, straight and upright; which has had the odd effect of making the chimney look even wonkier. Still David says the chimneys should now last us out, and I can live with that........... if you see what I mean.
Good Night All.
