Call me impetuous, but I've just bought this big pile of split, metre length, Chestnut.
I don't know how much there is of it, nor do I know how much it will cost me. What I do know is that my friends José and his daughter Laurence will charge me the 'correct' price, deliver it, and stack it beautifully.
It's pretty dry already, but if I give it another two years, it'll be perfect. I have enough of both Oak and Chestnut to see me through the next two years, so this new load will simply be in reserve. God, that makes me feel good.
Oh how blessed I am with certain of my neighbours. What WOULD I do without them!
