Warmth, finally

I wasn’t planning to blog today, but I’m feeling motivated to mark this momentous occasion: our first fire!

Weimage2ll, our first oimage1(2)ne inside. Hughie & Gareth have been building some bonfires in the garden as they tidy up the overgrown yard.

The chimney sweep came out today and cleaned four fireplaces, just in time for the cold weather.

I’ve got chicken stock on the stove and am going to try this Smitten Kitchen recipe for the Simplest Apple Tart.
