I hope everyone is having a great Christmas 🙂 and enjoying the festivities…
Spent last night at my Uncle’s house, he is also called Buck – so I suppose you could say he is Uncle Buck… Oddly enough, 😉 Uncle Buck the film is on today, but I can honestlly say that my Uncle Buck is not a scruff – lol, but he is a cool guy!
Anyway, we slept downstairs; my Unc’ left the stove burning all night. I must say that stocking the stove up just before you retire for the night is a cozy feeling in itself, but having the stove burning all night is something else and.. Havin’ the luxury of your camper bed being situated next to it is just a dream ;).. I’d buy that for a dollar – lol
Stoves are really becoming popular – My Unc’ has had one for years, he lives out in the Fens and has a reasonable amount of land – not really a farm as such, but the house is sort o’ farmy and they do have a number of animals, including; a funny lil’ Cocker Spaniel, by the name of Harry – he’s sooo adorable!
Cocker Spaniels can be some of the best family dogs and he’s grreat with the other animals. They have a few chickens, some ducks, a few rabbits, two horses and a cow called rosie 😉 – we sometimes feed her half-chopped apples which she devours with the help of her large lengthy toungue.
Their wood and coal shed is located just outside the back door, so access is cool when its cold and being located this close to the back door makes all the difference (I can vouch for that). They have a funny statue next to the back door that used to be a lady sweeping, but over time has come to resemble an old man with a walking stick, about to fall over lol…
Heck, it gives a bit of character to the house and is something to laugh at, (if you’re humour is warped like mine) lol!
Anyway, I am off to cook – I am doing a Veggie stew tonight with a few beans 😉 and a number of other exotic ingredients – I made some bread a few days back, so we can have a few crusts with it!
Take care all and have really Happy New Year!
And remember; if you have a stove, be safe but keep it burning!
