Yes I know a strange subject to write about in the middle of summer especially if you live in Cyprus which is currently running a temperature of 40°!
‘So why are you writing about it then?’ Well it’s because that’s the subject that is dominating my household and has been for the past nine months at least! The ‘War office’ sorry I meant Sarah my wife has decided that it is what we need this winter yes we DO have a winter. She has also managed to convince me that she is right. I have spent the last week or so preparing a ‘feature’ wall in readiness for the said wood burner which will be fitted at the beginning of September.
The feature wall minus the wood burner which will sit in the centre on a 10mm sheet of toughened glass.
So come September we will have a wood burner. Now...Cyprus doesn’t even begin to get cold until December the earliest, if you can call 20° cold! I remember being is short sleeves one February! I must admit though, when it gets cold it gets very cold. What I envisage is that once the stove is in place it will be screaming at us...’Light me, light me!’ and of course we will and we will sit in front of it in our shorts and t-shirts saying things like; “Aww isn’t it lovely,” or “Oh it’s so cosy,” and “Just looking at it warms you up,” whilst we wipe away the sweat from our brows!
Look out for the September blog entry when I can show you a picture of the wood burner in situ, and tell you about roasting our nuts on it, and who is running about looking for wood, and who is cleaning and lighting it etc.
Be well everybody.
Well you know I'm an Author, so you keep reading, and I will keep writing :)
