This looks cosy enough for me. Hot tea, soup, a good book, a nice blanket...mmm...

GG: and it has a big comfy sofa and no TV.

We do have an open fire place, well 2 actually, but we use neither of them. I do love the idea of having one but the idea of chopping up wood etc. all seems a bit too much like hard work.

Looks very cosy. :)

Joey: the good thing is we can still have an open fire, should we feel the need, by simply moving the stove - and even I can move it.

Rog said...

Oz and Lily insist on a real fire but they don't have to do all the clearing out. Yours certainly looks the part.

That looks great!

Well, I do have a woodburning stove... and I do love it... but I been burning wood all winter and now I am looking forward to the summer break when I can stop clearing up after it.
And to be honest, I wouldn't miss the spitty wood I sometimes get that explodes when I open the door leaving little burn marks where I least expect them. One day the telly is going to cop it - I live in fear.

Nice. We swopped ours for a gas version (with REAL flames) years ago, no mess! :¬)

Rog: does the spitting not bother them? Mine doesn't spit.

Scarlet: there's always a fly in the ointment isn't there? Real ones are more fun to watch and can be quite mesmerising.

Mapstew: our other room has a gas one. We had it in our old house and liked it so bought another when we moved here. Unfortunately this room doesn't have a gas pipe and we didn't fancy the upheaval.

Rog said...

No Pat, I don't do it in the living room :-)

Pat said...

Rog: tee hee!

Guyana-Gyal said...

No tv?

That cannot be!



Hehe, can you tell I love tv?

Pat said...

GG: if we re going to use the drawing room more I suspect a TV may creep in.
I won't have one in the kitchen.
