Small Bedroom, October 2009 - A Bit Of A Mess!

As now appears normal for this house, stripping the wallpaper resulted in quite a lot of plaster falling off too. There were already lots of holes in the walls due to the rewiring a few years ago, and once I'd made another hole in the chimney, the room looked a right mess. The extra hole was so I could block off the chimney into the kitchen without having to remove the kitchen. Yes, I should have done it before I put the kitchen in, but I didn't, and ever since then the jackdaws have been dropping all sorts of things into the kitchen. The left hand chimney opening had blocked up again, and apart from one dead baby jackdaw and a pile of dust, I found out where all the stale bread me and the neighbours throw out to the birds ends up! I even recognised some crusts as those from my early attempts at bread. Eventually, the wiring for the extractor fan will run from the airing cupboard down the chimney, hence the bit of hosepipe to allow it to be threaded through.
