Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Tuesday, June 7, 2011
We have ordered a wood heater, which will be installed in a couple of weeks. While the heat pump (not air conditioning, as it was called in Sydney) does a great job, we've been a little concerned about power outages, especially with the snow we've had already... plus nothing beats the cosiness and warmth of a real log fire. And I'd rather stare at a log fire than the TV any day! In preparation, today we took delivery of two tonnes of wood, which David has stacked in an apple crate at the back door and in the garage.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
