Fire relitt as pesky wasps trying to come down the 
flue bless them
I gave a bag of green leylandii logs to a friend last week as they have bees in the chimney and wanted to smoke them out. Seemed to work.

And the fire is back on this morning. 12.8c this morning and raining steadily. It's supposed to warm right up by the end of the week though.

 A brilliant sunny warm forenoon yesterday, but turned britterly cold in the afternoon(13 deg, but with a biting Nth wind chill-factor), and upon opening the patio doors at 06:00 this, the longest day morning, me testicles were running for cover from the lazy Nth wind.

Brrrrr.

Yep, suncream and sitting outside past weeks, solar tubes giving blazing hot water. Then a sudden change,  cloud cover, East wind no hot water and the missus struck up the Aarrow stove.  Harmony restored in the house!

Yeah we lit the wee stove in the lounge last night as it got quite cold around early evening. I heave never burnt so much as I have this winter & spring.  Usually 15 cube a year, over 20 this last year. Thankfully I had the wood to burn, will really need to start laying in extra each year so there is no risk of running out.
