Evening one and all.
The annual heating-going-on chat always makes me laugh. We have just had a new 'thingy' installed so we can remotely change the temperature in every room etc, and it has already caused 'debate'. I was brought up on the 'put a jumper on' school of thought, although my Mum always opened the kitchen window when cooking even when heating on. My OH is of the 'a house should be warm enough to wear a T-shirt' brigade. I think we discussed the minefield of sharing a bed with someone with different climate control requirements before too!
Hope everyone is ok - and is warm enough, by way of heating,fire, jumpers or animal.

My parents would put the heating on as a special treat when visitors came round. I always wondered what they must have thought at the pile of thick blankets on the spare chair that we'd normally be huddled up in. It was only after I left home I found out that my parents rooms were so much warmer than anywhere else in the house! I remember putting my school clothes in a pillowcase in the bed so I could get changed without leaving the duvet.
Now my partner is the type of person who is in a t shirt in three foot of snow so I am back under my blankets! 16'C in the lounge right now apparently.
Funny though I feel the cold; I have to have the window in the bedroom open even when it's bitter out.
