It’s been a while, I’m sorry. But I’m sure you understand. We’re trying to crack on with some work in our own little home before Christmas, and I thought you might like to see what we’ve done ready for Santa’s arrival.
A new fireplace! Well, it’s going to be our first Christmas here, so we felt he deserved to arrive in style.
Remember this monstrosity back in January 2013…the flat wasn’t even ours at this point.
Then we were gifted this gorgeous cast iron fireplace.
Sadly, the measurements didn’t quite work with our house and the chimney breast. But then, as if it was meant to be, we came across another one in an antique shop and Big Man got to work. He removed the old one, measured up …
Then the chimney was swept…
And now it’s ready!
Come on Santa, we’re ready for you.
