Oh my friggin god it's cold. Feels like Antarctica in here. Honestly, think Olaf my new tenant!

Kids room monitor says 21 DC? Surely that's incorrect. I mean, I can't be that old that I'm feeling the cold already?

Please tell me others have the heating on in these subzero (OK, slight exaggeration there) temperatures that is the north today? grin

We've had ours on for a month now (Edinburgh ). I refuse to be cold.

It depends where in the country you are
If you're in ESSEX then Yabu
Ive got the cold fan on

It's October! We're in the south and we had the heating on this morn.

I'm West of Ireland and I stuck the storage heater on this morning. Now have to wait till tomorrow morning to reap any benefit. Grrr.

Rocking a v fetching pj bottoms tucked into bed socks look for now. Also considering waking hot water bottle DD2 for a feed.

I'm boiling! I've got bedroom window wide open

I put the heating on for 10 minutes to warm the house up this morning and the thermostat didn't click, until the dial got to 20.

It's weird because during the Winter, we're perfectly happy with it on 19 confused

I must be getting old too, or maybe I need to start wearing extra layers blush

I bet derek is in the south too ... Or in a different country

DerekSprechenZeDick Sun 02-Oct-16 22:46:50

I'm in Yorkshire...

Shinyshoes2 Sun 02-Oct-16 22:47:15

Oh ok my apologies wink

Herts, feeling chilly but resisted putting the heating on and put a cardi on instead. Ran round a bit too but then I'm a northern girl

FeelingHotHotHotOhYeah Sun 02-Oct-16 22:48:17

Omg I wish it was hot. Hot I like (well, not too hot grin) but can't cope with this cold. Don't want to boil my kids though in their room. Got one DC who always cold and one who's always hot sharing a room too hmm

I got to NOVEMBER last year before it went on
Then to be honest it was sick a mild winter I literally only had it on for ten minutes a time just to rage the chill out if the air

Shinyshoes2 Sun 02-Oct-16 22:49:07

Take the chill out of the air

Realhousewivesofshit Sun 02-Oct-16 22:49:29

Brum hearing on

Heating grin

It was 7 degrees here this morning - heating definitely went on for 20 minutes or so!

JemimaMuddledUp Sun 02-Oct-16 22:50:53

It was 2 degrees here this morning, first frost of the autumn. I haven't put the central heating on yet, but we have lit the fire in the evening. The DC have started wearing their winter PJs.

SaggyNaggy Sun 02-Oct-16 22:51:49

We're near t'Hull and its fine, I'm even juast wearing a T-shirt right now, no heating for us. smile
Mind you, I often insist it doesn't go on until November. We're on Paygo gas and its like burning £10s to keep warm.

shadowfax07 Sun 02-Oct-16 22:54:34

Ours went on yesterday. Well, I say went on, I turned the thermostat up from 12 to 20, we never actually turn the heating off IYSWIM.

Oldraver Sun 02-Oct-16 22:55:23

We 'pressed the magic button' today.

Though actually the bathroom radiators had been on a week as the towels were not drying

EveOnline2016 Sun 02-Oct-16 22:58:18

Why wouldn't you. It's cold get warm.

LetsJunglyJumpToIt Sun 02-Oct-16 22:58:48

The heating went on yesterday, it's October so it's allowed. I've resisted so far but it's cold now!

Caken Sun 02-Oct-16 23:00:48

I snuck ours on today and when OH questioned it I just said it must have got cold enough for the thermostat to kick in... technically true but only because I changed it to start up the heating if it got below 20 😁. I like to be warm!
