Burnt the first two of our paper logs last night – and they were great.  Half expected them to go up in a matter of minutes, but they took a surprisingly long time to burn.  Very effective. 

We have agreed therefore that there will be no paper sent to recycling from this household – it all gets ripped up into small pieces and put in the tub outside where it soaks before being made into logs (on warmer days – else my hands freeze!).

I’ve set up a little rack in the airing cupboard to partially dry the logs – then we put them next to the log burner to finish drying before burning them. 

With a combination of the paper logs and the wood we’ve collected (I had a go at splitting the big logs the other day for the first time!), our lounge is a warm and cosy place to be!
