Thank goodness we installed a new wood burning stove in the cottage this year…it already has been worth every penny. Today some new visitors arrived for their holiday and it’s the same day that Western Power had informed us that our electricity would be off all day! No electricity…no light, heat, water (we’re on a bore hole which needs a pump) etc. etc… so all prepared we had already cleaned the cottage but with no heating and the cold damp weather today …we would have been lost without our little treasure…our wood burning stove. It has blazed away all day warming the cottage through and making a lovely welcoming sight for our visitors.
