Ah, the bookshelves at Charlie’s house (Aisle Barn) look so empty. We had to remove and store all the amazing books because of blasted COVID. and it makes all the rooms look a bit blank. Luckily there is a cosy gas-effect fire in the sitting room to compensate. Various people have advised me to replace the gas fires with electric but I think Charlie got it right. A log burner doesn’t work at AB because of the difficulty in loading and lighting. I reckon the gas effect is the next best thing, cosy-wise.
