The commencement of week six in glorious sunshine. Ceilings progressing from some not very ‘elf n safety’ angles with the aid of some really useful poles. Yes he survives through to see week 7 amazingly!

To rest my worried mind about lighting the range I found one of only 3 chimney sweeps in Asturias to come and see to the chimney, all was in good working order and he left me reassured. How on earth there can only be 3 sweeps here in Asturias ill never know, pretty much everyone who lives in a house has some sort of fire place or range. I asked the chap what people do and he said either nothing until the house burns down or at best the get up on a ladder and dangle a chain inside the chimney and wiggle it about a bit! haha!
