February Snow

Can you believe it! this was taken in February 2008!



It is so cold! - February has arrived with snow and wind and left me shivering - however! my multi fuel fire is warming me twice as promised. Once chopping and gathering the wood - one again on the lighting, sitting of an evening with my feet stretched out on the foot stool, wearing my hand knit socks - knitted by my grandma about 20 years ago (and still looking like new!)


A good friend let me borrow his chain saw - I was like a wild woman this morning out in the backs, work bench set up, goggles on and safety gloved, I felt like waving the chain saw in the air and holing like a crazy wolf when I cut through my first log!


Not sure how the money saving is going - still haven't used the tumble drier once since Christmas, and the heating has been on very little - keep going round the house switching off anything on standby - we will see!

Just got a mental picture of you waving the chain saw about and howling!! cheered me up no end - just be careful! they will be sending the little men in white coats to cart you off!!
Doin' well with the frugality thing!

I could do with a shot of that chainsaw my him indoors very kindly went back off to work (for a month) and left me with NO kindling. Men! Washing up in stages, well I guess at least he's doing it. It's taken me years to try and get him indoors to do it on the same day the dishes were used. LOL

Big well done on not using your dryer, I keep trying not to use it but Twiglet seems to have more costume changes than the Queen :) I love the thought of you brandishing a chainsaw, put it down when the postman delivers won't you :)
