Our plumber is a registered with “Gas Safe” which means he is safe when doing things with gas appliances. One sometimes wonders whether this involves more than paying a fee to get a sticker on your van and little else. Well, nine days ago our plumber came, by arrangment, with a Gas Safe Inspector and they went all over our gas supply and the central heating boiler. The Inspector made one or two Observations and announced that the boiler flue was too near the existing brick chimney. It was 300mm away whereas it should be at least 500 mm. So, today we have the plumber here moving the flue !

A reminder from John Ruskin, . . .
“There is no wealth but life. Life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admiration. That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest numbers of noble and happy human beings; that man is richest, who, having perfected the functions of his own life to the utmost, has also the widest helpful influence, both personal, and by means of his possessions, over the lives of others.”
From “Unto this Last”, 1860.
