'Fess up. Who has relit their woodburners this evening.

Flipping well chilly so we've done just that. The past few days were so warm and Spring like I had Mr BEVS take the wood logs to store under the house. He then found himself back under the house this evening to fetch the same logs back up . Oopsies.

well must admit I did go to start googling "how to make a fire" as MrF says I do not do it correctly, apparently needs to be a triangle or something. anyway looked around a bit thought "this is the kids area, they can put jumpers on.

Erm, although don't have an actual real live fire to light, our 'heating' hasn't been off yet.

Me but then I live in Tokoroa so no surprises there. Just moved from Taupo where last year I even had a fire in December! My old neighbour told me had to light a fire on Christmas Day one year!

[Mini-Rant]
How can you make a fire wrong? If it burns it is successful, if it burns the house down its just very successful. Can you imagine scout camp "I liked your fire but thought the arrangement of pine logs really let you down I'm afraid little Johnny, now you have to share a sleeping bag with catholic camp master Bruno."

This relentless pursuit of a pointless and futile perfection in mundane tasks just really annoys me, just so others can feel superior in their time wasting ability. It's like listening to middle class women wittering on about their extremely petty medical problems diagnosed by their "specialist" in a game of one upmanship. Ebola is a disease, feeling down on a rainy day is not.

So you enjoy your wonky, misfit, mutant fire MrsFrychan. As Francis Bacon once noted "There is no excellent beauty, that hath not some strangeness in the proportion."

We did. Poor hubby had to traipse to woodpile in far away corner in the pouring rain to collect some firewood. And just last weekend I was thinking of clearing out the ashes and making the log burner look like a decorative piece of furniture for the summer.

Well, it was 25 degrees on Sunday
