We are keeping our Aga!
Just getting it tarted up a bit! We had a lengthy discussion last night and decided it had become part of the family. We KNOW the current model - we KNOW how much heat it gives out - were we to replace it with one which did not generate as much heat our plan to knock a door into the snug and share the heat would not work. Also - we would be in trouble if we had a powercut - as we do form time to time. Jon is going to strip it down and recondition the barrell - the main fuel source and this will increase it's efficiency. When the Aga salesman came round he said "They don't make them like this anymore!" and the words kept coming back to me. It was a lot of money and whilst we could afford it we both felt this was not how we normally do things. We only replace something if it breaks or is beyond repair - so there you have it!
The kitchen makeover will now commence - watch this space!
