First of all Happy 9th Birthday to our MR Eden who told us the other day he is so tired of being 8!!!! I must remind him of this when he is groaning at 30 lol.
Sadly because of a leaking ceiling etc we made the decision to remove the wood heater causing all the problems, I know we will miss it dreadfully and it will take time to get used to the change,we have other heating but will eventually put gas in, I am not sure about elsewhere but getting wood is almost impossible and buying it so expensive,so we are winding down ready for retirement in a couple of years..
Sadly now it is gone but it opened the room up so much..we will miss her.
This lead to the rearranging of furniture and the other decision to buy another desk as ours was actually a small hall table and had little knobs that the boss kept hitting his knees on and not so nice words lol so we saw this beauty and had to have her, she is mahogany and was on sale very reasonable so I had to rob my stash of savings,I will get it put back as someone straight away bought the wood fire(must have smelt us removing it) and a birthday coming up so I will get some money for that and put it back .I have not put bits in all the little places yet as Lilly is coming to stay and I thought she would enjoy that and when Livvy comes soon she can do the other side.
The other thing I did was to try out the dehydrator that we got for nothing...and it was great,we did tomatoes,mushrooms and onions,we put the tomatoes in a good oil and the mushroom left to be rehydrated in winter, we are going to do garlic next for garlic flakes,I think this will be well used.
