We've (my flatmate and I) finally got the fire going properly, thanks to the ever helpful neighbour below us who came and sorted us out. It goes like a flamethrower, which bodes well for winter when it comes. We were doing all kinds of things wrong it seems, but now the living room is resembling if not a sauna at least the room next to one.
Still, it's so mild here at the moment I was hoping we'd get through winter just with the electric underfloor heating..
