Gift horses and mucho firewood…

They say you shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth, which I think means saying yes when the neighbour asks if you want the wood from a 70 year old Ash tree. Even if the sheer size of the tree made me break into a sweat just thinking about it!

Turning the neighbours unwanted  tree into firewood

I think this is about half of it, which means I still have some work to do to get it all chopped and stacked before it snows. William has turned into a wood stacking maestro, making quite a neat job of it I recon. Not bad in exchange for a few biscuits…

I’ve no idea where I’m going to stack the rest of it, we are all firewooded out now, but you can be sure it won’t get wasted. Looking forward to saving lots of electricity…

Hope your autumn is giving you plenty of opportunity to get out and about among the fallen leaves before winter sets in.

Stay well

Ian

p.s. this is what it looked like before we started…
