The first

: The first collection of wood
: The first use of my new wood basket
: The first setting of the fire
: The first lighting of the fire
: The first crackles and smells and smoke
: The first sitting of the fire on the couch with wine in hand

: The first of many {no doubt} for the year and the season
: I’m officially in my happy place

    Okay I’m officially green with envy. That is if I wasn’t so hot with the aircon on. God I love your home.
    I always find a fire so relaxing to just stare into space; almost meditative and calming. Enjoy and I look forward to many more when it really gets cold. x

    It’s so hot right now I can not imagine a fire. Wish I was there.

  • Jodie at Mummy Mayhem

    Wow. It’s fire weather already?! Lordy.


  • Mama of 2 boys

    What a fireplace! I’m loving that chair next to it. The whole scene in fact. I can see you kicking back with wine in hand lady. Good on you!

  • This Mid 30s Life

    Jealous!! I have such wonderful childhood memories of our winter fireplace. The sound, the smell, emptying box after box of tissues into it… (was that just us?)

    We have a fireplace that sits there taunting us. It is blocked. It is wrong. (We’re renting. Urgh.)

    I love this blog by the way. Love it. Makes me feel very nostalgic.

    I know how comfy that chair is. I can only imagine how glorious it is next to that fire. x

  • Permanently twenty three

    Ok, so I want to move to Bowral now.

    That is all.
