Today my Mum and Dad came down to visit but no not a mere jolly they were on a mission. Me, Mum and Little L headed off for a walk down the canal and left Dad and Mr P with hammers chisels and a grinder arghh!
We saw an unusual floating shed on the canal. The man who has it is going to open it up as a floating health food shop.
We also saw some nice ivy flowers and red berries, very autumnal
We came back a few hours later to a houseful of red brick dust. It was a bigger job than first thought perhaps and it turns out our house is very solidly built, always a good thing. So an afternoon of further banging, grinding etc (which little L slept through yes she is a star) and we have a bigger hole with a lintel resting in place.
So next stage will be fitting a custom made steel plate over the bottom of the chimney and setting the lintel in place. I can't wait, there is the small problem that we haven't got a stove yet but I am on the case.
Bye for now hope you had a good day x
