Hello Dear Reader,
I love the gentle yet pervading aroma of a woodfire through out the house and the smell of clean and drying laundry. The sun left us early today and by three o’clock it’s become over cast and smoke is curling out of the houses in the valley below. If I don’t get the washing smartly, then my knickers will smell like kippers!
I was watching some facile bunch of plastic no bodies showing people around their houses and the simple premise of the TV programme was that the house judged the best won. I looked at all the houses and thought: there’s no where to stack any wood in that front room, where are they going to hang the washing and there’s no where warm to leave bread to rise. I didn’t think any of them were winners! Nil points from Froogs then!
My house is warming from the stove, the scent of drying sheets is filling the air, I have a stew bubbling away and all is good in the world. My house wouldn’t win any style awards but it simply does the job. It keeps us warm and safe.
What do you love about your simple frugal home? or would you like to change?
Love Froogs xxxx
