Tired this morning. Really must learn to go to bed earlier. As observed previously, I definitely need a substitute mother around the place to tell me to "go to bed now, or you'll just be all crotchety in the morning!" *Yawn*.

So. I have a new boiler on the wall, although it's not fully connected up yet. Upstairs neighbour wasn't around yesterday, so heating engineer couldn't get under her floorboards to fit a bigger gas pipe to my boiler (the new boiler's a lot more powerful.) But he's done most of the job and he's going to come back today and at least fit a cupboard around the boiler. Hopefully neighbour will be around, too, so he can get upstairs.

Anyway. It's cold here this morning. At least I have an electric shower, so it's not as bad as it could be.

Wear a jumper ;)

(More seriously, I fail to understand why people (not neccesarily you, of course) insist on heating their houses to 25 degrees C, wander about in t-shirts, and then moan about fuel prices - our thermostat's set to 18 degrees, and in the winter we just wear jumpers).

Definitely not me. I was just extra-chilly from the bathroom, because a Georgian flat is drafty enough already without a big hole in the wall where the boiler flue used to be... Plus, it's awkward to shower with a jumper on ;)

I haven't actually had the heating on yet this winter.

I can't speak for everyone (although I try, believe me) but in winter I find I sometimes I heat the house to at least 21, wear a t-shirt, jumper, big jumper and cardigan over the top and still feel cold. I refuse to wear gloves in the house...
