First indoor fire of the year :)

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

I love my fire. It's a cheap Aga lookalike with an oven on the side and cast iron hotplate. I cobbled up a drying rack that sits a couple of feet or so above it so it can dry clothes, cook food, boil water and heat my house. Today I toasted bread over the hot coals too. It's truly versatile!

Yvelines, north-west of Paris, France.
Might light another fire tonight, now that the weather has turned a bit chilly.
Well, I wrote that on Wednesday.

Thursday was cool, but not really cold, and mostly fine. But I still stopped off and got two bags of firewood.

This morning was cool and rainy, too. But on the way home.... SNOW. Not heavy, and the ground was too warm for it to stay, though there were a few cars with about 1/2" of the white stuff on their bonnets and roofs.

There's a nice little fire going in the hearth tonight.
