Then he decided to clean the sit out balcony off our lounge. He brushed all the moss off the old stones and treated them with some anti fungal solution. He took down my little string of solar lights which he said were out of keeping and complained about the black railings that are not original and probably not in the right place, he's becoming so conservation since we moved into a listed building.
We agreed that the balcony deserved some better furniture than the two folding plastic chairs we have at present but that can wait until next year. I'm thinking black rattan armchairs but I'm not sure whether the guardian of our heritage will approve.
