I was bored and was just channel surfing when I came across one of those daytime design shows on television this morning, you know the type where they come into your house and rip it to pieces and then kit it out in rubbish and the couple stand there and pretend that they like it when they are actually dying inside.
The bloke presenting the show was dancing about and saying what they were going to do to this poor married couple’s home when something grabbed my attention at the end of the show.
Some of the rooms had Gas Fires in them. I like gas fires, well actually I like real ones where you throw wood and paper into it to keep it burning but gas ones are great as well, and it reminded me of when I first lived with my dad who had a gas fire.
I found a web site online that sells them at a very cheap price. You can also buy Electric Fires as well, my nan used to have one of these and I’d warm myself by it after bath times when I’d stay there as a nipper.
You can also buy accessories that will help make your chosen fire look even better, such as marbling to go around the fire.
