Yesterday we lit our first fire of winter 2019; even though it was still quite warm.
Why, you ask? Well, we had no power from 6 am to 5.30 pm.
I have no idea what caused the cut; probably a couple of wires that had come astray, and the bastard EDF failed to repair it for A WHOLE BLOODY DAY. So we lit the fire, and a dozen candles, just for the fun of it; and to amuse the children.
Also, it was a really foul day. Wind, Rain, and plague of Locusts; we had the lot.
Billy was a bit wary of the fire, and retreated to his bed in the kitchen. Come pukka Winter I expect he'll be curling-up in front of it. Time will tell.
The sitting room was sweltering; we had to open the door!
More foul weather forecast for today, but my fingers are crossed that our electricity will remain ON.
