This is a significant day for me as it will see the arrival of our local friendly chimney sweep, Ricky, for his annual cleaning of the chimney in anticipation of colder nights and frosty white mornings. The logs have been chopped to size and the kindle is neatly bundled (it's the perfectionist in me) with newspapers a plenty and I cannot wait to strike the first match! 

Suddenly the wood burner will undergo a metamorphosis after being completely dormant over the Summer months it will become the centrepiece of not only the lounge but quite possibly of the entire cottage, as a source of blazing heat and also for its comforting glow and the heart warming crackle and pop of the burning logs. Both of the cats will gravitate towards it and the eldest, Molly, will pretty much lay in front of the burner for most of the Winter and I am seriously tempted to join her!

As this is such a special day for my home, I thought it only right to signal this ritual sweeping with a selection of heart warming fires and fireplaces, I particularly like the knitted floor cushions (knitwear still featuring heavily in cushions and throws this AW13) and the all important tray of tea.

I suspect that my good friends Michelle and Rob will be prepping their burner too or maybe they have already lit their first fire of the Season? (let me know guys). Emptying the ash and preparing for the next fire can be a bit of a chore at times but it's worth it every time. Also a huge 'thank you' to Donna & Andy for the logs from their felled tree, I think I owe them a hot choc each in front of the fire!

One final note, I have just been informed that temperatures are due to soar into the twenties in the UK this weekend ;-)
