Today we hung 3 radiators. The house was build in 1786, revolution time! It takes time to weave the thin copper pipes though the ancient oak beams and pine rafters. Soon there will be heat in this old house and my parents can heal their aching fractured bones in comfort. Limestone is fossilized bones, in a way.
The puddles are still frozen and snow stripes the fields, the potted Lilly hangs limp at the bottom of the stairs down which my Dad and then my Mum both tumbled. They are not called Jack and Jill.
