We try not to put the heating on here too early as it's so expensive, big old stone house, ancient boiler, oil heating - which costs more in France. Bedroom windows shut in winter to keep the warmth in and open in summer to let the cool night air in. But in the Norfolk cottage the heating (gas) is cheap and efficient and the cottage is really well insulated. Built of cob, clay lump, wattle and daub - depending on where you come from - thick walls.
Was only 3° again this morning. Yesterday was quite sunny, 20° in the afternoon.
Going to a meeting in Bergerac soon.
