Simple things. Found these antique French bellows on eBay. Love them. Slightly damaged but they work and I will repair the damage. Help to keep the fire going in the wood burner. Small steps café!

We have not used fire-lighters since we moved aboard. We use packaging from food, post, any kind of thing that can be repurposed for fuel. It is a process of enlarging conscience. Waste not, want not. What is clear is that most of the waste I do create at the moment comes from single-use plastics associated with food-products. This is a huge issue and one that supermarkets urgently need to address. Whilst some use of plastics may remain necessary for very specific products, paper, glass and metals that can be recycled would be ideal so that 90% of what packaging we do use can be repurposed one way or another.
