The only other incident of note this week was the appearance of a bird in the fire!! Fortunately the fire wasn't lit at the time and we managed to assist the little fellow in flying back outside. Hope that doesn't happen too often though!
All in all a good week and we've barely used the central heating this autumn yet. Admittedly it's been pretty mild, but there have definitely been evenings when we would have flicked it on had we not had the fire. (And if you're wondering, no, I havn't tried lighting the fire myself again yet! I must have another go before we get some really cold weather, though).
