Up bright and early this morning to put the fire on just to add a couple of degrees.
It’s cool outside here in Galera, but the skies are crystal clear. Hopefully by 11am or so it’ll be nice enough to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. Last night I was jealously eyeing up our neighbours pellet heater, a very high-tech device that takes small pellets of fuel (£3.50 a large bag good enough for perhaps a couple of days), starts automatically and gives out a frightening amount of heat, controllable over the Internet (though he’s not set that up) and generates no smoke, no internal fumes… and yet has the nice flame glow of a fire… magic. Not that it’ll be doing much business here for a while as you can see by the weather forecast.
