Would it be wrong

To go outside now in the cold and dark to cut and split some wood. Don't know why but the idea for some reason is appealing. Or do I need to get a life....

I wish I had a log burner to burn it on, but one yes is enough for me.

See you in an hour

Sounds to me like you have your life sorted out, go get splitting. They wont split themselves.

Re: Would it be wrong

Well that kept me out of mischief for a little while. Definitely more productive in daylight though!! 3 tonne/builders/you know the ones I mean filled with a mix of ash and rowan.

Got another pile twice the size again to do next then a load of sycamore.

Oh and I like my splitter, just under a tenner from the hardware store and it's ace!

Then I just need to turn unseasoned logs into hard cash, easier now than it used to be.
