A cup of tea has just been set on my desk. Did I detect Keith hopping from one foot to the other? Don't be daft Ang, the old fireplace is out already. That was a bit quick. Has he done it properly? The disaster movie has now cut to panning around the 2" layer of soot covering our living room. I can smell soot, I'm sure I can.
I can hear drilling or something. No, it'll be a brick saw....and I picture another few months of getting rid of brick dust from everywhere. Whatever happened to using a bolster and lump hammer to carefully remove brickwork not needed?
That amaryllis I mentioned last time is blooming beautiful! It has 3 trumpets fully out and a fourth on the way. My sis started hers growing at the same time and the stem is still only an inch long. She says she's chucking it out
but I think it'll go if she lets it. Just look at MINE (she said smugly):
Remember that lovely Kelloggs brekky basket I won in Marie's giveaway last year? Red. shiney teapot? This is that teapot today:
They've gone. Obviously there's still work to be done BUT The new fire looks lovely.
