Woodburners get through a lot of lumber and it has to be cut and stored properly. The wood has to dry out thoroughly and that can take about a year. There is plenty of storage space under the garage and more is available under the front steps. Cutting up the wood might be a bit of a problem, so another little thing on my “wish list” is a bench saw.

The most expensive thing on my long shopping list is the car. We bought an old Nissan X Trail last summer and just about everything needs to be fixed. The engine guzzles oil and produces lots of smoke, so it is likely that new gaskets and bearings are needed. My guess is that the catalytic converter is bust and probably the piston rings need to be replaced. There is no GPS and the shock absorbers are probably ancient. I paid 5,000 euros for this car and my guess is that I will probably need to spend the same amount again for all the work on the car that needs to be done. I suppose that all of this serious work on the engine will make a huge difference to the car’s fuel economy, so maybe it will all be worthwhile.
