Preparing for winter

Winter will be setting in soon, not viewed with the same scale of the panic as in the series Game of Thrones I hope!  I know I can be dramatic about it, I am not keen on the slippery icy pavements, the inability to get warm, having to wear too many layers… but I am not quite as distressed as some of the characters from that show!  With their grave announcement:

But still I do like keeping warm, I tend to have my onesie, a dressing gown and a blanket over me when it’s the height of winter!  Although remaining portable when your wrapped in so many layers is tricky to say the least, so instead I might have to invest in some decent heating or be confined to the sofa!

I quite like the look of the wide range of electric fires at Fireplace Megastore; the flame effects are romantic and reminiscent of the log fire at my parents house.  We have no chimney anymore here it was taken out in our most ambitious home renovation project a few years back, so the only hope of re-creating the cosy atmosphere of a log fire is to go electric.

So I plan to visit fireplace megastore online with post haste, as online shopping is the way to go when you live in the back of beyond!  Miles from civilisation on any kind of scale, this winter I will be prepared, I will toast myself next to the fire like a contented cat.  Casting aside my thermal socks and long johns (hubbie will be delighted with this news!) and enjoy a proper (electric) fire.

How can I be gloomy watching the flickering flames dancing in front of me, central heating is nowhere near as pretty.  If you were heading out into that snow coming home to a nice fire would cut through the cold before you know it, so stop your moaning about Winter Starks and get a decent fire.
