This weekend we lit our first fire of the season. I love the ritual of making a fire, scrunching of the paper (or making twists), stacking the kindling on top in a tipi shape, then lighting the paper from below, watching the flame roar upwards.
We have a log burner in our lounge, A little treat with some redundancy money I received from a job that I hated, many years ago. I love how our beautiful log burner brings us light and warmth in those dark days of Winter. The irony is not lost on me.
In half term, we shall take a trip to a local farm to stock up on bags of cut logs. We’ve been going there for years. The barn is something to be seen. Oak framed and beautiful, stacked high to the rafters with beautifully seasoned fire wood. Yes I am a wood geek! I am obsessed with logs, fireplaces and the perfect fire. Spending hours pinning such things on Pinterest.
So, that is it. The fire is on now, until Spring. We prefer to heat our home in this way, I always seem to get a cold when the central heating is turned on. Does anyone else?
So, do you have a log burner or an open fire?
