To be too hot

Even though it's -1 here, I've got the window open right above my bed, no heating on and my summer duvet only covering my belly. I'm even pressing my legs against the cold wall below the open window to cool down. I've raised this before but I need to know I'm not alone in the winter. blush

Are you in the 45-55 age group by any chance?

Theboodythatrocked Tue 20-Jan-15 23:04:42

I am 50 and have pyjamas, bed socks and a hot water bottle. Bloody cold still. Mirena coil working well now. grin

My bf's flat is that warm we have the window open every night, summer duvet on and heating off

Mine on the other hand is like an ice-box

Bluegill Tue 20-Jan-15 23:06:11

I'm sure it will only get worse too!

Yep it's a great time of year to have hot flushes. Hope they stop by the time summer gets here though.

Overactive thyroid?

But no, I'm nesh, me. Sorry. <ratchets heat up a bit more>

Bluegill Tue 20-Jan-15 23:07:26

Theboody?!! I'm not ET. Am I missing something grin

Bluegill Tue 20-Jan-15 23:08:19

Cat, no, under active. I should be freezing.

Theboodythatrocked Tue 20-Jan-15 23:10:20

OP you're not alone!

Today I did the school run wearing a sleeveless top, sweating slightly - the weather was sunny, 3 degrees grin .

I'm used to getting funny looks by now. I hope things will calm down a bit when I stop BF!

I hope you manage to cool down. I'm OK this minute as I've left my hair to dry naturally after showering bracing myself for another sweaty night though

I have my own peri central heating system at the moment blush Its like a power surge...

Bluegill Tue 20-Jan-15 23:18:15

I'm currently annoyed that it's not cold enough outside and the breeze coming through the window (which I'm lying directly under) is not bloody cold enough. It's like a summer breeze, I've had to pull my pj top up. I'm tempted to go into the loft to find a fan grin

Bluegill Tue 20-Jan-15 23:20:03

Missyama, I have to have another shower after I dry my hair. I near combust when heat is applied.

I'm only 32 and last night DH put the heating on low all night and I couldn't sleep at all I was so hot.

Have you been in Western Africa lately? No?
Any signs of plague then?

My heating has been on constantly since mid Dec, I am still cold. sad

And soon to be penniless no doubt, when the gas bill arrives! hmm

Bluegill Tue 20-Jan-15 23:27:17

Cat! Seriously?! I long for the days when I loved being cosey with a hot water bottle. Those days are sadly gone.

Bluegill Tue 20-Jan-15 23:27:58

I've just had a rebate from my utility provider grin

Bluegill Tue 20-Jan-15 23:28:19

Sorry. I shouldn't gloat.

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Tue 20-Jan-15 23:29:18

I'm boiling as well only had the heating on about an hour.

My house is insulated to the max, with foam blocks on the outside which was rendered and plastered. Above the recommendation for loft insulation and double glazing with no caps.
