Don’t you just love cuddling up in front of a fire? The temperature in Oz has dropped – thank goodness. I’m a gal who loves the cold. Begs the question why I live in a sub-tropical environment where it is hot most of the year. But finally the temperature around Byron Bay has dropped and we’ve been able to light the fire all this past week.
I love everything about having a fire. Collecting the kindling from around the property. Pine cones are especially good to get the fire going. I love building it just right so it lights up straight away and then stoking it all evening to keep the house toasty. What a joy.
I realised I haven’t (I don’t think) ever put a fire lighting scene in my books. I must do that.
What about you? Do you have a fire at home? Do you love lighting it and watching the flames dance?
