Nothing controversial about this, but I resolved not to to put the heating on until October at the earliest, but I was so cold on Sunday morning that I put it on for an hour, and then again this morning - so lovely and toasty... I am in London, so I know it hasn't really been that cold yet, but my flat has no insulation, and rubbish windows that rattle when the wind blows.

Yes, I did - in fact on Sunday morning I was huddling under a blanket on the sofa (after DD had tragged me out of bed...)!!!

Resist. Be strong. Think of the moral highground you can occupy!

I am sat here in jumper/socks/scarf and blanket. But then I am very high up moral mountain.

YANBU. But we are holding off a little while longer. Got 10 tea lights on in the lounge at the moment and its toasty warm and cosy.

Fix yourself a hot drink and put a fleece blanket over yourself.

No. If it's cold, put the heating on.

I hate this new puritanism. There is nothing virtuous about being cold.

put a jumper on.

if we all plan to put our heating on on october 1st there is going to be a melt down... massive

i think your body needs to get used to be cold and when you are cold and not yet used to it, it can be painful, you can be chilled to the bone. i know i was last weekend and broke my resolve in putting on heating, despite telling myself to put on a jumper! i just needed to feel warm

we are sat here with the window open in front room and our bedroom window is open and we only live in wiltshire lol

I am determined to wait until October! Our house is cold. Dp tried to put the fire on in the front room last week - I went mad!!

Maybe I will try to wait until November this year. Who can actually afford to pay for the extra gas bills this winter?! Dd has loads of fleecy/padded sleepsuits ready to go!

I am sitting here freezing too -we foolishly sanded our floors when we moved in and now the wind whistles up our trouser legs.

Oh for a sodding carpet. envy

SilkCutMama Tue 23-Sep-08 22:06:10
