Yip.. Parking enforcement Officers, RBS Bankers and a smattering of Politicians too although they tend to smell of Bulls*%t when burning.

Burning oak and coal that my neighbour told me had been in her coal bunker for 30 years and probably wouldn't be much good.
I now know coal has a shelf life of at most 30 years!!!!!!!!! Wtf?
Daft old bint.

Coal fires smell better than wood fires?
Surely a north/south divide. Don't know which way though>

Had a day off with the children on Thursday..... lots of icicles hanging off the cliffs at Ceibwr, but we all wrapped up warm, sat in the winter sunshine with the beach to ourselves for the afternoon, with a driftwood fire and a picnic..... Love the smell everytime I put on my coat and I love living back home in Pembs

Oh, and a mixture of ash and oak on my fire tonight.....

Mixed with east European gas? I thought we were now a new importer of gas. Plus my gas fire needs electric to run the fan
