Sweeping the Chimney - 24 Nov 2010
Part of trying to live self reliantly is having a go at things you would normally leave to experts, or in the case of sweeping the chimney
someone who knows what they are doing. Not me though! Sweeping a chimney how hard can it be?
I have jumped out of planes at 3000 feet and 12000 feet, I have freefall parachuted for 60 seconds. I have abseiled down sheer rock faces and
enjoy climbing up them. Walking up a 30 year old roof some 5 metres from the ground though adds a new angle to vertigo. It is not the height, more
it is my 85kg of mass pushing down on an old roof!
For the last two years I have bought Osman (52kgs) a couple of beers for the privilege of climbing on my roof to sweep the chimney, unfortunately this
year he is away working in Germany and rather than look like a big girls blouse have decided to do it myself.
Needless to say I am still in one piece otherwise I would not be writing this now!
Infact as soon as I realized the roof was not going to
cave in decided to take my camera up with a coffee and sat down on the chimney to enjoy the view. My neighbours no longer think of me as a big girls
blouse but a bit mental. 'Why were you sitting on your chimney with a coffee taking pictures ? You nutter!'
