It may well be summer but times stands still for nothing and no-one!
We ordered our logs for winter on Saturday and they were delivered the next day, £90 for a cubic metre, same price as last year. We use a relatively local tree surgeon as opposed to a company we used to use, who were situated at the bottom of Norfolk.
As usual, we borrowed an old wheelbarrow from a neighbour and got busy. This was the first time doing this with Ruby. She was going to be locked into the driveway, but as it happens, she was fast asleep in her crate.
We used to give our neighbour a few logs as a thankyou but he no longer uses a fire. He has requested and now receives a jar of his favourite make of jam.
About half of the logs were suitable for immediate stacking. The other half were wheeled into the garage where DB, after a suitable rest, used our log splitter to break them into slightly smaller pieces as we only have a small woodburner.
All in all, about 90 minutes work from start to finish. I needed a very cool bath after trundling that lot around!
Congratulations to Jamie and Bruno on winning the Washington Citi Open.
