Either Winters start to get colder earlier, or I've turned "soft". Today it's been 8C and sunny in S.Yorkshire. As soon as the sun dropped it's down to 2C at 4pm. Feeling cold so put heating on. Wearing socks, trackie bottoms, jumper and body warmer already.
How did we cope years ago?
Our first house 1981 had only a gas fire in the kitchen & lounge, no heating elsewhere. We did install a gas fire on the landing, so we used to get bathed, and run out onto landing to get dry & dressed.
In winter we had ice on the inside of windows and spent time laid on sofa wrapped up in a duvet watching the tele'.
I'm sure I felt less cold in those days. I know they say that the elderly get hypothermia because they aren't aware of how cold they actually are. So I guess I'm not too old yet
That was in jest, I feel so awful for people who are afraid to use their heating due to costs.
Keep warm all & I guess we should be thankful we aren't in Canada in deep snow for months.
