We are very grateful for our one remaining wood fire. The heat pump the Government kindly installed as compensation for having lost three fires (earthquake damaged chimneys) keeps icing over.
Not looking the gift horse in the mouth though...
|No al fresco breakfast|
|Serious dumping on the rocking horse|
|New patio in the making - half laid with |
salvaged bricks from our chimney stacks
|From our bedroom through the |
french doors to the veranda
