Longing for a fireplace

This picture was taken at the Totnes Museum or, to be accurate, the Totnes Elizabethan House Museum. And yes, this post is a cheap excuse to upload another picture from my holiday in Devon. But anyway, my father told me over the phone that the temperature had dramatically dropped these last few days. Here, although it is looking more and more like autumn, it is still very warm during daytime. And of course I have started to long for colder days, for when the day will feel like it looks. Which leads me to fireplaces. I would love to have one to be able to lit a fire and read right next to it, or just simply watch the flame. I have of course nine at home, but there are a few pubs around here that have one. I guess I could just do this when the temperature goes down. Anyway, it struck me today: I miss a good old fireplace.

I really love the charm of that fireplace and of a cosy fire.
