I installed an old wood stove to get some old fashioned heat in our house – not to mention some FREE HOT WATER for my large and luxurious baths where i do most of my theological reading, but alas, there was yukky smoke billowing out of the chimney.

So yesterday I did the chimney sweep thing with a special set of brushes (Debbie wanted to play the song from ‘Mary Poppins’). A whole bucket load of dirt and bird’s nests came out. This morning, I had to sweep down a brand new nest. Bloody birds have declared war on the Jones family. Anyway, this is me. Coal-faced!


Ohhh yeah – internet is back on . . . Getting broadband is always a blast, no matter how many times you get it installed. Consider me back in the land of the linked.
