The temperature in the car on the way home tonight was -2ºC and it was snowing heavily but I had the heater on full blast and so it was fine. The house however is another matter – it is so cold that we’ve resorted to huddling under a blanket, wearing lots of jumpers, cuddling a hot water bottle AND plugging in the electric heater.
I’m guessing that if the snow settles we’ll not be going anywhere tomorrow so will have no excuse but to strip more wallpaper upstairs. In fact, I’m secretly quite excited because I’ve realised that I’ve spent hardly any time in the house in the day light. I leave in the dark and get home in the dark and the weekends have been so busy that the time I have spent here during the day has been minimal. We have a week booked off in March to really start to make some progress but until then I wouldn’t mind a couple of hours (in the day light) just to enjoy being in the house.
