    1. Thank you it is good, it was actually tricky to hold up, point, focus and snap, many pics taken before I got the two I could keep.

  15. I'm so thick I didn't realise it was you having your chinmey swept - Thank goodness for all the comments from those more on the ball! We had ours done years ago as we have an open fireplace but as we live in a building with other apartments above I have never dared light it in case the smoke seeps into their homes!
