Yesssss, we have a working stove again. Yesterday Ian replaced the fire rope round the doors, gave it the 12 hours to allow the adhesive to set and lit it this morning and now it's doing it's job nicely without that smoke pouring in from around the door. So one very happy bunny today especially as the wind, rain and that drop in temperature arrived as predicted.
Watching the hirers leaving this morning and battling the sudden gusts, wrapped up to the hilt in thick coats, our decision to stay was a good 'un. Some very sharp and prolonged showers kept us inside but then when the sun did come out the temperature was most pleasant. Cant win really, not at this time of year.
And starlings on waste ground.
