How are you enjoying your new stove? I quite enjoyed it when it was mine, but we've just finished our new cooking fireplace (it took hours and hours of making bricks and cementing them together, but was quite worth it!) We haven't tried cooking with it yet, but I know it will probably take quite a while before I understand it completely. Nan, Lissie, Rachel and William are all being very helpful. I am about to send them out to buy food from the market, and then I shall start them on their new duties and sewing projects. Rachel wants to make herself a new ball gown, yet she has not yet mastered her embroidery sampler. I think we shall have to start small.
