Chimney has been swept…

… so we are ready for wood burning action….

typically it is a little warmer this evening so will probs be waiting until next week to go for our first burn of the autumn ☺️

Elliot and Simon chopped the logs from last spring and have placed them around the back of the garage to dry – they might be usable next winter.

We will have the remains of the large tree in the back garden that died last year to chop soon enough – once we have found a tree surgeon to carefully take it down for us. It will likely provide a couple of years of heat once it down and chopped accordingly – big job ahead of us however….

COVID progression

So following Vicky’s positive test, she has now had a positive PCR test done and we are therefore all officially isolating until next weekend.

Vicky has now lost her sense of smell and taste which is not much fun apparently 🙁

The boys have tested negative on Lateral Flow tests conducted last night and have this morning posted (we elected to test at home rather than go to a drive through facility) PCR tests – we should get our results in a couple of days…

School were pretty quick to spin up the online lessons for the boys although not all of their lessons are online – hence they are enjoying a little more RnR time during the school day….
