We went to the Prom. I walked.
My favourite sea birds. Oystercatchers on the beach.
Weather was fine. No rain, bit of a wind, cool.
Lots of Gulls on the sea.
Back home and the stove mannie came to clean out the Sitting room and Shedudio stoves. He advised us to light the house stove as he had reaffixed the seal and that set the glue used.
So in the evening the DP lit the stove. It quickly became apparent that the smoke was not going up the flue. He managed to remove the contents of the stove and we then sat for some time with every door and window open, me with my head stuck out as smoke does not work with my lungs, or what remains of them, until all smell of smoke had gone.
The stove mannie is coming back tomorrow. Bit of a disaster.
