Today I had my gas fire taken out and replaced with a log basket. It was a 'pretend' gas coal effect fire. The gas engineer just removed the gubbins from the middle.....I kept the wrought iron fire basket and he cut off and sealed the gas pipe. Total cost £25.00.
I went and bought logs and a log basket, fire guard and a set of fire irons - plus some logs and fire lighters. Total cost.....£80.
So I have a blazing log fire for £105. My budget had been £300. That means I have £195 to spend on sweets. xx
