Friends and the wood.
For some time now a lot of worrying has been happening about how we were going to sort out our little wood. It's just an acre ,the whole being surrounded by a small stream.Its a place to sit,watch dream and think, though lately it had become a place to worry.We had a very tall poplar tree felled at the end of the summer and it has lain there since. Since Tony was so unwellin the autumn he has come to realise he can't do all the things he used to do with ease and cutting a huge tree into managable logs was beyond him and it certainly was for me. Then earlier this week two lovely neighbours called by and offered to help. The sun shone for most of the day , logs were cut and put away to dry out,and a huge bonfire got rid of all the unwanted rubbish.We enjoyed a pic-nic break and all agreed it had been an enjoyable and productive day.
At this moment, as I write, the chimney sweep is here as we had a chimney fire the other day,undoubtedly he told us because we had been burning green wood. It was quite frightening so a lesson has been learnt.
