It is cold Elizabeth so keep well wrapped, that biting cold artic north easterly wind cuts right through, though thankfully our weather isn't as bad has that in the USA and Canada with record breaking coldest temperatures.
Elizabeth. Fleece pj's are very good at keeping you warm in bed, try fleece socks too. Thankfully I don't need them, my husband is a radiator. But I have a fleece dressing gown that is very warm indeed.
It is cold at present,but it's not going to last much longer,unlike the Winter of 1963,which went on for months,and was even colder,and the house we were in then just had one open fire,and draughty old windows.
Spud1 we lived in a old cottage were there was a fireplace/range in the kitchen and a fire place in the parlour which got light every Preston guildThere were gas mantles down stairs which gave off some heat and you went to bed using a candle for light . Your bedding was army blankets with great coats thrown over the top of these.In winter you chipped the ice off the insides of the single glazed windows and had a bath in the tin bath at the front of the fire with the clothes maiden round you to keep the cold draughts at bay. Kids today don't know what cold is.
peterp+ Elizabeth is an ols lady I think so will feel the cold more. I'm sure she remembers the ice on the windows and overcoats on the bed.So d I and I's hate to go back to it. Give me mu fleecy dressing gown and central heating any day!
Ever seen the Monty Python skectch about the 4 yorkshire men? your post Peterp reminded me of that. Perhaps somebody clever will put the link on
