At 8am they started putting up the scaffolding and this morning the bumps and thuds have kept me indoors. My attached neighbour (my house is end terrace) is having the chimney stack repaired/replaced and this is benefiting me because we share a stack. Four chimneys each. I only have one fireplace but guess that if I wanted to I could uncover three more! Anyway my fireplace has been sealed up and vents taped against the soot.
Now you understand why I'm writing this at 10.15 instead of the usual 7am-ish.
My plan is to look at all things wood in Hobbycraft in Havant today after a trip to the shop around now. Enjoy your day!
