Time to chop more wood

Although it is far too early to switch on the heating, what with the drop in temperature (14º inside the homestead) and the persistent rain, it’s good to see a fire back in the grate. Along with a bottle of Speyside’s finest it is one of my principal guilty pleasures. There may be some sort of Spartan virtue, a certain manly satisfaction, in dismissing the vagaries of our climate, but once my body temperature falls below a certain level I feel like a character in an episode of Cadfael ... It appears my copper bracelet is not the panacea I’d hoped.
