Preparing for winter

We've been busy over the past couple of months chopping and splitting wood to burn on our wood burner. I'm not sure if we've got enough for the whole winter but I think we'll be ok for a bit.

We've had our wood burning stove for 3 winters and since then it's snowed each year. Last year we had a record 18" of snow in early December and there's nothing like sitting in front of a wood burning stove flicking and whilst it's snowing outside.

Gosh, that looks amazing! Bet it'll last for a lot of the winter.

Fantastic photo. DD wants to go to university and one of her ideas might be to go to Newcastle, I had completely forgotten about the sheer amount of snow you get up north. I was moaning about our heating bills down here in the South! We are intending to move together wherever she goes to Uni,so I need to think carefully about where we would end up! Beverley
