Another scary moment, suspended in mid-air.
Unfortunately, despite all the poking and prodding, the chimney is still blocked, so we will have to try something else.
This side of the house hasn't been painted for a long time, due to the difficulty in reaching it, you can see that there is a lean-to attached to the wall, so to get the most value out of the hire, DH painted the wall. He was still up there in the dark at 4.30pm, I had to go out and put all the yard lights on, of course, they didn't shine in the right place! When he brought the arm of the cherry-picker down I had to go out with a torch to help him guide it onto it's rest. Anyway at least that job is completed.
