Ours stays “on” year round, governed by the thermostat in the living room. Started coming on in the mornings on Thursday.

Same here. Ours kicked in this morning for the first time since whenever last winter stopped.

I put the heating on manually on Friday during the day because my office was f-f-f-f-freezing.

MrsC and I have just been discussing turning the gas fire in the living room on this evening.
...but in the end we didn't.

Jumper, trousis, socks, Proper Shoes.  Even the conservatory at Fort Larrington is resolutely refusing to warm up today.

... in that case you're very much "on trend" from what I've seen in a couple of press articles today - even David Beckham was pictured in sandals and socks so you're in good (??) company.

Yes.  2 days ago.

My wife, who has some Italian heritage, also has cancer, and is a bit down atm.  Normally (and before she was ill), she'd want the heating on in late August, so well done to her for hanging out for so long.

Turned the radiators on in the living room today. Made everything much more comfortable.

One of the benefits of living in a flat is that we never need to heat it because we have a steady 23°C coming from the folks in the flat beneath us.

WFH with a hot water bottle this morning.  Window fitters are here, working hard to get the outside on the outside.

It doesn't seem to be. The other WFH person warms himself with banks of servers but my measly laptop is not doing enough for my feet. Thick socks and merino underthings are not helping enough.

I don't know what they do in Slovakia where road-runner is, but in Poland when I lived in a flat, there was a complicated system whereby different flats paid different rates per unit of heat. Discounted rates for being on a corner, for instance. We were on the second or third floor IIRC, definitely not on a corner, and the whole building was clad in some sort of polystyrene, so I'm not sure if our heating bill was reduced from not very much to even less or increased to still not very much.

Nor do I! That is an interesting method in Poland, Cudzo.

Ours was, but I dropped my wife off to the care of the NHS for a week or so this morning, so I've turned it off. The dog does not care and I can put a jumper on if needs be.

My heating is on. I am sitting here wearing a t-shirt and short trousers (the uniform of covid lockdown).  However I always obey my 85 year old mother so I pressed the buttons on the central heating.
