Someone Call a Plumber!

Today was easily the most stunningly beautiful day of the year so far. Sharp frost over the undergrowth, wall to wall sunshine in a clear blue sky and not a breath of wind. It's times like this I'm so glad I live where I do. The air is pure, the noise of birdcalls and the occasional sheep is pretty much all there is to it. Amazing.

Unfortunately for me, I spent the whole of this wondrous day crawling around in loftspaces, peering under floorboards and into voids between walls in what has become a seemingly never-ending quest to track down an elusive leak in the central heating system. The biggest problem is that the building has been extended who knows how many times and nobody has a clear idea quite where the old plumbing runs, nevermind the newer stuff. Plumbers are back in again tomorrow, at least I've helped narrow down the search area.

Gotta love a random 3" nail banged through the floorboards....

Between the original external wall (now an internal wall) and the new wall. Bit of a tight squeeze!

Hope nobody wants through that door in a hurry...
Anyway, the upshot of all this is that I've categorically discovered a great many places where the leak isn't (good job we've got a whole five days before re-opening to the public...)

By the time I finished failing to find the leak it was getting dark. I scrambled up the hill and faced west towards the open sea

Despite missing most the day, this makes me happy
Right, I'm in a mood for daft and meaningless music that'll get my head a-bobbing. Luckily, I know just the fella....enjoy!
