chim chim cheroo

The chimney in our flat was swept this morning. This was a new experience for me and I was astonished to see our chimney sweep was neither Dick Van Dyke nor a filthy, malnourished urchin, but the well-scrubbed Phil from Forest Hill.

He still used the flat-top brush but these days they have a vacuum cleaner stuck to the end to catch all the soot.
Happily, all was in order with our flue (no birds, skeletons of nannies or obvious structural defects) and I got to see the brush poking out of the top of the chimney pot which was most satisfying. Chim chim cher-oo.

  1. Hi, David! I love your doodles and illustrations!
    I’m from Brazil, and I never had seen a chimney in all my life… Well, just on TV… XD

    And.. I live at northeast… It’s really hot here! I’m sure I don’t need one.
