I am sat here in my winter woolies seriously thinking of putting the heating on.
Its only August where has summer gone.
Its blowing a gale outside and looking like rain.
Anyone else cold?

Ive got my newly knitted jumper on- very cosy!

I've been putting the electric blanket on the past few nights and I've had the radiators on first thing and in the evening.

However, it seems a warm spell is on the way before Autumn arrives.

Yes, got the heating on.

Pantglas1 Thu 15-Aug-19 11:41:03

Jeans and a fleece and slipper socks but no heating......

Yes its chilly had the heating on for an hour last night and seriously considering putting the 10 tog duvet on.

I've had the fire on for a couple of hours the last 3 nights. I've worn jumpers since that hot spell. Haven't got round to the vest and tights yet as I'm not going to feel any benefit when we do have winter.
I feel the cold at the best of times so it's miserable when you're wearing jumpers mid-summer too.

Well it must be getting a bit chillier, as I haven't had the fan on in the bedroom for the last two nights. But I'm nowhere near putting the heating on though shock

A couple of hours working in the polytunnel keeps me sweaty! even on days like this. Just come out for a break and cool down.

I don't think I've been cold since about 2009!
The menopause put paid to me ever feeling cold, I think.

I have had my heating on quite a bit over the last few weeks Bopeep. Mainly when I have the baby as I worry she might be cold but sometimes when I am just sitting in the evening.

It has been a very cold, wet and disappointing excuse for a summer here in the North East.

Bopeep14 Thu 15-Aug-19 13:16:02

Thought maybe it was just me, as my husband never feels cold.
Luckily i have a week off from looking after the grandchildren, so haven't had to put the heating on but i have been covered up in a throw at night watching tv grin

Like MissAdventure I haven't felt cold since 2004 and the onset of menopause, I dream of feeling cold but alas it is just a dream. Sweaty Betty that's me.

I refuse to put the CH on in August!!

tanith Thu 15-Aug-19 13:49:23

My heating won’t be going on anytime soon, I still have doors and windows open unless it’s pouring down.

Charleygirl5 Thu 15-Aug-19 13:49:42

I have felt cold some evenings but I refuse to switch on the heating in mid August.

You do realise it is only cold because I bought a super-duper fan and it is not even out of its box yet. That put the kibosh on any hot weather.

tanith Thu 15-Aug-19 14:04:11

Charleygirl5 good of you to take the blame 🤣

annodomini Thu 15-Aug-19 14:07:17

It's usually against my principles to wear socks before the beginning of September but I'm wearing them today. Even when the sun is out - occasionally - there's a chilly breeze. I'm also thinking of putting on my 9tog duvet instead of my summer weight one. The fan I brought down from the top of a cupboard during the two days of summer a month ago, is going right back there when I have the energy!

Mapleleaf Thu 15-Aug-19 14:37:02

No CH, but I've been chilly this last couple of days so have resorted to putting on a cardigan and wrapping a blanket round my legs in the evening. I'm determined not to put the CH on yet!!😁

SueDonim Thu 15-Aug-19 14:42:52

It's a nice day here but I had socks on at the weekend. The CH has been on for a couple of hours some evenings, for a puff of heat and to dry the towels out.

BlueBelle Thu 15-Aug-19 14:46:22

It’s been a lovely summer here in the east if England I ve still got my shorts and sleeveless top on No complaints from me

GabriellaG54 Thu 15-Aug-19 14:54:16

No menopause and haven't had heating on since March or worn jumpers/throws on bed etc.
My home is warm enough and exercise keeps the blood pumping.

jura2 Thu 15-Aug-19 14:55:09

No CH- wow you made me jump. Lots of CH here- all around me lol.

Last few days I've been sunbathing at a spa and 2 local lakes (France and CH) - but today it is cold and rainy on and off- so got a long sleeve t-shirt on and short socks- but refuse to put long trousers on. Forecast is great for tomorrow - so off to a third lake for more of the above (CH Confédération Helvétique = Switzerland).

It's 23c here in Kent sunshine and patio door open.

Sorry people.

MiniMoon Thu 15-Aug-19 15:38:42

Well it's 16°c here in Northumberland, but it feel more like 12° with the breeze blowing!
We've had our heating on for a couple of hours over the last two evenings. I'm a cold creature at the best of times, can't bear cold arms!
