So with the garden pretty much finished, it was no time for the finishing decorations, which included a chiminea and some lights for the seated area.
I took Olivia out for a ride in the car after picking her up from nursery, and we picked up a chiminea in the clearance sale at the local DIY store, I guess most people don’t buy them this late in the summer. It seemed like good value, and a similar price to ones I’d seen on eBay, only no postage charges and I got it immediately! It was fairly easy to put together, although it took a little while, but I still had it finished before it went dark, meaning we could give it a test run tonight.
After the girls were in bed, I took the ANKER bluetooth speaker out and put on some relaxing tunes whilst I started the fire in the chiminea. Clare poured us both a drink and we sat out and relaxed as it started to get dark. It was nice to just sit there, without the distractions of the tv, enjoying each others company, and bask in the warmth of the fire as the night air started to cool down.
I’m looking forward to this becoming a regular feature!
