Stocking up for winter

Our new next door neighbours were having the garden cleared. As a result, we have acquired a goodly heap of firewood which should keep the wood burning stove going for a while!

Trouble is, while the living room gets nice and toasty, the central heating in the rest of the house goes off, due to the thermostat being in the warmest room, so while certain members of the household, both furry and hairy, are lovely and warm, those forced to earn their living by tapping a keyboard are f-f-f-freezing!

 So I think I'm going to need this furry hat that I found in a charity shop today. It was brand new and still had its Accessorize label attached, showing that its full price was £20 while I paid a mere £6.00. It grips the ears rather too tightly but at least it won't blow off in a gale!
