After watching the kids doing their Christmas performance, collected them to come home and it started to snow. So we have at last lit the fire and decorated the tree. Now just the rest of the house to go
The surround is now in place and we are just waiting for the glue to dry at the bottom left as it was twisted out. Even got the coal bucket in place, which looks fab and was a 10th wedding anniversary present.
We bought a basic basket and some coal today. Also i've now made the inside edge finish out of aluminum. The only issue now is the surround is slightly warped, which is going to make fitting it a pain.
My kite got rather dirty the other day as the field had fresh grass cuttings on it and it was wet :) So today it's been hung out to dry, brushed clean them gently washed down. Not perfect. But a damn site cleaner.
