Back in operation

The temperature outside today eased itself cautiously up into double figures. The temperature indoors upstairs, however, stubbonly refused to shift from single figures. So I flung open all of the windows and the warmer air was gradually sucked in, overwhelming the chill that has occupied that space for the past few days. This afternoon, we collected the repaired woodburner door, re-installed it and this evening the stove is now kicking out some much-missed heat! You only realise how much you miss something when you don't have it.

The one positive thing to come out of the woodburner being out of action is that we were able to finish off the wall tiling behind it - photos soon, once Andy has finished off the area where the pipe and conduit go up into the chimney and I have touched up the paintwork around the tiles.
