We haven't needed to light the fire yet...windy some days, very little rain and generally warm. Still about 23 degrees outside right now.

Golly gosh that is good Bazz we have the fire lit every day for the past three weeks now, some days it is very hot other days it is dull and cold. Outside is sometimes warmer than inside too

Sometimes we win...other times we lose. Just outside for a smoke...clear skies, stars from horizon to horizon and not a breath of wind.

Quite a lot of snow on the high ground above the farm at the moment...might be almost time to think about our fire.

Hi Guys

Well hopefully the fire won't need to be on for much longer this year. I admit it was lovely having the fire but it is just so dirty. The ceiling is black, dust everywhere so will have to take everything out clean, wash and paint the lounge again, no matter how careful you are the smoke still got out. I dust everyday but still by evening it is back again has to be the ash as the balcony is covered in and no dust gets in.

Just a thought!
I am now thinking putting in a pellet fire place in the cellar and rads, will have to go to Silistra and find out all the requirements and the cost of this, but would it be as cosy and warm as the fire. Anyone got one of these.

Is it time to get the wood now spring is here?

I just rang our friend to ask the merchant next door how much he would charge for 10cubs of wood cut and split and delivered.. Awaiting the reply..




UPDATE 11.07am

10 cubs of cut and split wood will be delivered tomorrow or next day, no delivery charge and same price as last year 70lev a cube. Happy with that g Now to tell the neighbours as the bragaide will come and helps us stack it, this is done with everyone's wood same with picking their grapes and sweetcorn we all go to help each other, lovely day out

I am a little surprised as the wood did not turn up yesterday or today as stated. I hope it turns up tomorrow

Hi Berni
Did you go to the wood yard to order? Trust you arranged payment on delivery not at time of order? it could make a difference! if thy have the money in advance they are in no rush to deliver to get their money

Hi Bill

Yes, our friend who has the firm next door have been dealing with the merchants for years so he ordered it for us. I think that is why we they gave us no delivery charge as it normally 30 or 35 lev del charge to our village. Mind you I said there is no great rush I do hope it does not come today as it is pouring down. But it is sods law that it will. No payment will be on delivery. It was our friend that say maybe today or tomorrow but we were realize they do not know the address so they will have to contact our friend who will have to contact us as he know our village but never been here.

Ah just had a phone call to say they will deliver the wood tomorrow at 10am. g So glad it was not delivered today, they were bringing it this morning but decided due to the rain will do it tomorrow.
