Winter is drawing to a close and before it passed us by for another year my partner thought it would be a good idea to have a fire. His eagerness for a fire happened to neatly coincide with the need to dispose of some old wooden barrels that had for the most part rotten.
We drank a bottle of red wine and ate homemade pizzas sitting under the stars in our backyard. It was wonderful. It has been a long time since either of us has been camping and sitting around the fire was very relaxing. There is something very beautiful and mesmerising about watching a fire.
Master E. woke later in the evening after having a nightmare and I took him outside to sit by the fire and have a cuddle. It was the first fire he had ever seen. He was both enchanted and afraid of it... and very puzzled as to where it had come from.
