About a week ago M announced that we had just three or four days' worth of logs left this winter, so we've been doing without the fire mostly. We've had one of our three or four. I've had to put the heating higher again most evenings as it's been chilly, to say the least. It's not bad, though. I think we began lighting the fire on 14th October and went right through every evening unless we were out until the end of February.
Today, though, it really looked like spring out there. I went with M and Charlie on their walk, which doubles as a wooding session.
Note the nonchalant regal hands-behind-the-back pose as he balances the branch over his shoulder.
This winter the wooding M has done is spectacular and next year we'll certainly have enough to have fires for six months if we need them. We now have a small wood stack where last year was the whole stack ....
... and a large wood stack. You have to be impressed with the length of some of these. Mind you, the 7m one wasn't brought back over the shoulder ;)
