Its lovely and sunny here in the Charente Maritime today and a balmy 18c. My parents are here to stay for the week so my mother took the children for a walk down the old driveway to collect kindling. A whole wheel barrow was collected so I used some rags to tie them into handy bundles ready to chuck into the woodburners.
On another note a rather nice parcel of books that I won on eBay arrived. I was looking for books on Soap Making when I came across these for just over £1 each. The beekeeping book will be a useful refresher as my new hive of bees arrive in May and you can never have enough books on growing and preserving!
