Re:
Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Any time now we expect les pompiers to come racing down the hill thinking that we have set the forest on fire.

All being well the kiln will be opened tomorrow to inspect the contents.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Looks, like you've buried the Titfield Thunderbolt.

Still it's about time the Poterie du Don had some competition
and you'll need something to get the pots in and out - tongs of the Auvergne?

Re:
Arosebyanyothername's Avatar No, I wasn't Ivy, sadly. It was the winter before last when my nephew and his partner Johanna, were here and they set the chimney on fire with overloading the woodburner. They did it effectively and had to call les pompiers. My nephew was very taken with the female pompier, however Johanna said the male ones were fine.
