arguing falling out discussions have already started about whether we should light the fire or not. Carolyn seems to feel the cold a lot more than I do and telling her to put her coat on of an evening seems to upset her and cause even more friction. Anyway, with Carolyn off giving Hamish a long walk I thought that it would be a good idea to get everything ready . The dirty job of brushing the chimney was first, burning wood we have a lot of tar inside the chimney,so after brushing it I get a steel pole and really work it hard up and down the chimney to remove most of the tar.
Job done and you might notice that I have taken the cowl coolie hat off the chimney. I have been told that if you take it off it will reduce the amount of that horrible corrosive tar running down the side of the boat. We will see what happens….
