Mr Uphilldowndale, Tom and Joe have been on a mission. Remember all the trees we cut down? Well they needed splitting down into firewood size chunks.
It was no small task. So we borrowed my brother in laws (BiL) log splitting device, in fact we brought it all the way back from Weymouth* with us (so it was just as well we left Tom down there fore a few days or we’d have never squeezed everything in the car.)
So time passes and BiL has come to visit, and he will be taking his machine away with him, so it forced the log splitting task to the top of the very long ‘to do list’ that is running here.
Look! Mission accomplished. I think this heap of logs is a thing of beauty, very hunter gatherer, it is April and we’ve got next winters logs sorted. Excellent.
Must dash, we’ve a handsome slab of beef is roasting in the oven and I’ve finished my glass of Fursty Ferret
* If I mention Weymouth relief road in this post it will make BiL’s ‘Google alert’ go ping on his phone! Ha Ha gotcha BiL, twice.
