  4. It makes such a difference to be able to see the flames. Not that you can in mine, it is not a glass fronted one, big Norwegian giant of a stove but still belts out a lot of heat.

  7. I've got a small morso with a squirrel on the side.Since getting a fan on top a few years ago it's so much warmer .When the chimney was lined & a huge rubber liner filled with water was left sticking out overnight to set the concrete,my dog tried to attack it & I had to drag him off x

  9. I miss having a fireplace , there’s nothing like the scent of burning wood and the crackling sound of a fire.

  12. Late to the party. I have so many handy hints gathered over a lifetime of dirt, dust and doggedness, that I'd make myself hugely unpopular by opening my know all treasure trove. One glimpse: In the absence of wood ash (WOOD ASH? I ask you) bicarbonate of soda is a miracle worker. It will reverse a multitude of sins committed in the name of husbandry. And clean your teeth.

    Other than that, my dear John, what you need is a "Miele, Cat and Dog". No shit. That vacuum cleaner, aptly named, extracts dirt, dust and hair you didn't realize existed from crevices you didn't know you had. It's the devil of German efficiency.

    Sometimes, if I just use the tube without any attachment and it's on "max", it latches onto my skirt. Sucking it in. Yes, we do do battle. Should I ever go awol please do check the inside of my Miele. I'll be there, ensconced in the folds of its whiter than white bag. You won't even be able to smell me as the Cat and Dog filter has special odour deleting powers.

    Hausfrau greetings,
    U

  13. It looks so cosy! I tried to see if there was the triangle in the centre of the photo; hoping it was a video.

  16. It makes a difference when you can see the flames doesn't it ;-)

  17. Wow, the wood ashes really worked and some of the tips I'll be trying. I use plain tooth paste to clean silver,especially jewellery.
