Welcome warmth

Monday 6th December 2021, 4.40pm (day 3,756)

Fire in grate, 6/12/21

My three weeks in St Helena meant that I missed out on the first decline of winter, and have thus been plunged straight back into December chill and gloom, without the initial acclimatisation. Sights like this are thus very welcome at this time. It’s only just been lit, but it’s developing nicely.

Aflame, 24/11/15

Posted for much the same underlying reasons as yesterday’s pic of the frosty roofscape: because the winter chill is starting to seep through these increasingly old bones, there is pleasure to be found in watching things burn. So, fire today, ice yesterday: tomorrow I might try luke-warm water. (Spinal Tap joke.)

Pictured in the Hole in the Wall pub, at the stub end of another week. Is it the end of term yet?
