Firewood Collection

30 November 2009

After a good session in the wood over the weekend with a useful team of folk from Cambridge and Edinburgh, Bill and I (Rich) have spent the whole day - until well after dark - in the wood again today. I'm not sure how many tonnes we shifted, predominatly by hand or hand drawn and pushed barrow, but by the time we had unloaded two full loads off Patricia onto Rossalyn Pier it was hard to find anywhere to stand.

I'm looking forward to seeing the effect tomorrow morning when daylight will show the extent of our labours.... hoping for suitably impressed noises from Lizzie and Jean.

Bill reckons that this load should get us through the next couple of months. They say that firewood warms you thrice, the felling, the splitting and the moving. I think today we've added at least half a dozen further stages to the process.... that alone should keep us warm for the next couple of months!
