One Flue Over


Been busy with the annual chimney cleaning task, worked up quite a thirst I can tell you. Burning coal to keep warm in the eighteenth century must have produced some beautiful sights. The thought of this lot all chuffing away together gets me very excited - you'd have been able to smell your way home from the pub with ease. I'm rather pleased with the way this chap sits so snuggly in the trees.

Great picture. I myself was shoved up chimneys as a boy. I think I'll get round here to see if they want my two youngest to start training.

Cindy, now then - i have to confess that isn't actually my house, i just pretend it is sometimes to avoid getting into trouble with lord ashley for taking pictures of buildings, which is his area of expertness. You're welcome S,S&G and we think you ought to get a blog running pronto.

I agree, particularly as Cindy now lives in the 2008 City of Culture. So come on, lots of shots of the Mersey Tunnel Power Generating Plant and Everton Public Library please.

Cindy's gone quiet. Probably got that Ringo Starr staying. Or down the bus garage polishing her specs in the canteen.
