We had our ceiling plastered about two years ago. Its lathe and plaster and its boarded over in certain areas as the ceiling was cut away due to a botch up chimney breast removal before we moved in. We sorted the joists out properly so it's all now to a standard. The parts cut out where then patched up with plasterboard and the whole thing skimmed over. In one corner the ceiling has started to crack. Its cracking on the edge where the coving meets the ceiling and its cracking in the corner from one side to the other. It's hard to see as the cracks are so small. My question is is it anything to worry about. I refixed the coving as it felt loose. My plan is to repaint the whole sealing with some polycell paint that covers hairline cracks. I tried to fill it but the crack is so small it looks a mess. Does this sound like a reasonable solution?
