    I think I take cycling too seriously. This weekend Bags and I have been mostly knocking out the old fireplace in our new house. As I carted away a barrow load of rubble I found myself thinking 'Great, I've just made the house lighter!'

    Now that is funny, although I can't really think of a comment to say for the advantage of a lighter house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And you should be able to ride it up hills quicker

    You know when you're a serious cyclist? When you rip the fireplace out and replace it with a Sheffield stand.

    I wouldn't install a carbon fibre fireplace if I were you ;)

    The house already has plenty of carbon and it's already on top of a hill. I'm not sure if it's fixed though. Maybe I need a cast iron Victorian house freewheel?
    To the salvage yard, post haste!

    Oh very good Aperitif, very good....;)

    Anyone else familiar with this as the old euphemism for a lady's part which is unkempt and/ or unruly?

    e.g. she had a chuff like a ripped out fireplace, I didn't know where to begin.
