Space oddity

So as the René Magritte exhibition comes to an end at the Tate in Liverpool surrealism comes to our own neck of the woods - take a look at this:

Yep, your eyes do not deceive you, we have a radiator stuck on the outside of the north wall of the house. I am told that this is basically a heat dump for the solar thermal tubes. The tubes will generate hot water during daylight so if we are away and not using enough hot water this radiator will radiate the excess heat into the atmosphere, rather than blowing up the house.... 
.... I have a sneaky feeling that they're having me on about this.

Apart from our bizarre radiator the rest of the house continues as before and here are this week's views, in rather pretty autumn light.

The JCB at the front has been digging in the drains and you can see the base of the terracing around the house. 

Just opposite the front door the builders have put in the foundations for our bike shed (stop laughing, you). Take a look, it's even got electricity in case we can one day afford an electric car - ha! As if!
