We lost some of our trees this week. Allegedly they have caused some subsidence to the property, so some tree surgeons arrived and cut them down. We were very sad about this. But when we awoke this morning with no central heating and found we had run out of oil (delivery is now due next week) we were very glad of the large supply of firewood. Matt is now the proud owner of a (big) splitting axe. The playroom is cosy, but the rest of the house is icy cold.
