the log man cometh..............

Monday morning and the long awaited call from our log man came, he'd be here in half an hour to dump a full van load of firewood in our front garden. So starts two hours of wheelbarrowing said logs through the house and down the side into the cellar storage area, all in all a very satisfying job, knowing that the blazing fire season is now upon us..................


.................of course it helps when you have a big schoolgirl back after lunch to give a hand, and to sit on the doorstep sharing your sandwiches watching the world go by...............

Haha, my log man came on Saturday! I love winter, everyone seems to moan but I love wrapping up warm and snug with the fire roaring! Roll on winter! x

I am keeping my fingers crossed that we have enough logs to last us through till spring.

Your pile looks lovely.

I haven't got a log man. I do have a coal man and an enormous pile of wood in the front garden waiting for the wood 'woman' aka me to get started on it.

Love those cosy winter evenings when you close the thick curtains and sit with the fire burning a bed of coal with a huge log on top.
Beats a gas fire anyday of the week.

Oh how wonderful - I am mad with envy! We don't have an open fire here and didn't in our last house but I grew up with one and miss it so much. At least I can pop up to my parents to cosy up around theirs. Wishing you lots of snuggly evenings together.
Stephx - that's one of the sweetest pictures I've ever seen, lovely!

There is something very reassuring about a well stocked woodpile. I saw the most amazing woodpile in Tuscany last year.. and took a photo of it. It was so beautifully constructed and huge... the size of a barn.
You have just reminded me that we must have our chimneys swept so we can finally have a real fire in our home..
It has been so cold these last two nights.. have you lit the fires already?

Good to see that you will be ready for winter.

Bet you can't wait for the temperature to drop so you can light your fire and have cosy nights in! - Natalie x

Country Cottage Chic said...

We are going to order ours next week!

Garden Girl said...

Hmm. Is that a cheese and marmite sandwich?
I haven't got a log man. Will you still be my friend?!

Deb said...

Oh my, I wish the wood man would cometh here. We have to cut our own! I guess it's good thing we have it to cut though.

Cheers!

You've just reminded me to get the chimney swept! We took out a log burner (I know, I know criminal) when we extended a few years ago and I do miss it and the lovely smell. We do still have an open fire in our cosy front room and I love sitting in there reading with the fire roaring.

Things Hand Made said...

Enjoy your fires! Warm toes, flushed cheeks..mmm

Tilly said...

I could do with finding a log man. Love your blog header - reminds me of my 'cake plate' collection!

prettyshabby said...

I must get more organised..logs delivered must be so much cheaper than those measley bags from the garage..our fire grates are only small so I have to rummage through the bags looking for the little logs! x

I LOVE this photo! I keep looking at it. Beautiful...
