The life of a class traitor and peripatetic scouser.

I do realise that when it comes to building materials I am a rather sad individual, something I tend to realise as peoples eyes glaze over as I go on and on about stone,wood,cast iron and all things bright and to me beautiful. My latest source of delight is the red sandstone paving slabs that were delivered last week. I have been looking for affordable and quality stone paving for a couple of years now and have only found stone of the right type recently. You can buy tons of Chinese and Indian stone but to put it mildly it is total crap, stone isn't just stone! The building material of Cheshire and Merseyside has been red sandstone for the last couple of thousand years (Roman Chester) and contributes greatly to the beauty of the local countryside. The spread of materials from other parts of the world has cause many areas to lose their regional flavour and in doing so everybody suffers. So this sad individual is actually happy today!
