I was checking back through last years blog and I didn’t start to feel the cold until November. It was just as well as it snowed for two weeks solid in December and I didn’t turn the heating off at all then. Today, it just seems to be extremely cold. I’m very well wrapped up and must get some fingerless gloves to wear whilst I’m preparing my school work. I’ve actually conceded defeat and I’m in bed, with the notebook and I’m working from there. However, even though there’s no heating of any sort, the house remains a cosy 16 degrees. I pull the curtains shut as soon as I get home, I keep warm by staying in the kitchen where I cook and then I make sure I have plenty of clothes on.
I’ve got two hot water bottles, one on my back and one by my feet! I’ve also brought the blanket upstairs from the sofa and that’s on the bed too along with the home made quilt. This all sounds a bit drastic, but I can recommend it. I can read, prepare for work, catch up on blogs and we’re really warm.
Does anyone out there resort to getting to bed early to help beat the fuel costs?
Until tomorrow and I just might nod off in the warmth,
